VFW Post 805 .1K Fun Run

The VFW 805 .1K is a fun, zany, wacky, all-ages, family event put on by Sgt. Charles A. Fricke VFW Post 805 in downtown O'Fallon, IL to raise funds for the VFW National Home for Children and the Post 805 Troop Support Fund. At the length of about one city block, it is a short distance that anyone can finish in pretty much any manner that matches their skills and abilities. The short distance is long on impact as much of the funds raised are sent directly to the VFW National Home for Children to assist veteran and military families. VFW Post 805 is the Home of the Original VFW .1K. In 2014, the VFW Post in Naperville, Illinois saw ours and has held its own .1K every year since. Several other posts have hopped on the .1K bandwagon as well. The VFW National Home has also hosted an annual .1K fun run since 2017. We are proud this super-fun idea has caught on, as well as to say that over $150,000 has been raised to help veterans and their families through the VFW .1K fundraisers that have been held so far. With your help, we can keep adding to those numbers.

The race will take place on Saturday April 4, 2020 at 10:00 AM. The start line is near the caboose in downtown O’Fallon, IL. The VFW post is located at 221 West First Street in O’Fallon. We hope that while you are in downtown O'Fallon you will check out some of the merchants in the area and we hope most of all that you will bring family and friends and have a fun time supporting a great cause.
