Christmas Eve Morning Road March for Troops

 

 

 

 

 

The Christmas Eve Road March (3 mile walk) was started in 2004 by SFC Coon to honor our local soldiers who were deployed to Iraq. That first road march had just 25 marchers, and every year gained more and more support. The 2011 road march beat all previous years, with over 600 marchers. The march shows our support of soldiers who cannot be home at Christmas-time. It is free to participate! Care package donations will also be accepted.

Meet at the Clifton Park Park Park and Ride at 7:15 if you want to carpool.

The idea behind the march is that; on a day and a time when we could be home relaxing, we come together to “suffer a little” in honor of the soldiers. In 2011, SFC Coon also added a Mother’s Day Road March to honor mothers who can’t be with their loved ones who are serving our country.

SFC Coon served in the New York Army National Guard for 32 years prior to retiring in December 2011. He became a recruiter in 1998 and spent the last 13 years of his career enlisting some of the finest soldiers in the New York Army National Guard.

    Hey guys. I've been to this event before and know the organizer. If you don't feel like you can walk the 3.5 miles, you can still attend and watch the progress from the side of the street.
