      Marquette residents getting set to walk for Vets

      Marquette residents will be walking to honor veterans this Memorial Day.

      The 4th annual Warrior Walk for the Warrior Relief Fund will be held at Lower Harbor Park on Memorial Day.

      Participants will walk about a mile and a half towards the Northern Michigan University campus. They will then stop to have a moment of silence to remember those who served our country and return back to the park.

      "We just ask that everybody takes a moment, wakes up in the morning, goes for a short walk, wears red white and blue and we just recognize what the day stands for and you know the people who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country." said Warrior Relief Fund official Liz Belt.

      There is no cost to attend the event and the walk begins at 9 a.m. T-shirts will be available to buy to support the Warrior Relief Fund.
