Richfield Run Honors Wounded Veterans

By Colleen Mahoney | KSTP | | November 12, 2011

Runners took over Veterans Memorial Park in Richfield Saturday to support wounded veterans.

The 5K Shrapnel Happens event raises money for the Semper Fi Fund, a group that provides financial assistance to wounded service members.

One of the participants, Cpl. Dan Stewart of Austin, was injured in Iraq in August of 2005. His home was renovated with help from the Semper Fi Fund.

This is the second year of the event, but organizers hope it gets bigger each year.
