Danny J. Petersen 5K Run/Walk of Honor

Please join us Saturday September 19, 2020 for the Danny J. Petersen 5K Run/Walk of Honor and Pancake Feed!

This year we will host a ALL you can eat pancake breakfast catered from the one and only Chris Cakes catering for a small donation.


Raceday registration will be available between 7:15 - 8:00 am prior to the 8:30 am start. This is a timed event designed for children and adults of all ages with special awards for top male and female finishers as well as commemorative dog tag medals for all who attend!

Our mission is to give back to our local community and our goal is to provide a Scholarship for a USD #341 Oskaloosa High School Senior. Donations can be made even if your are unable to participate online through RunSign Up or by contacting Laura Claxton at 785-865-7398 or with any questions.

Our goal is to continue the legacy Danny created through his heroic acts. He was born and lived in the Jackson county area most of his life. He left for basic training from Oskaloosa, KS and earned the rank of Specialist Four in Company B, 4th Battalion, 23rd Infantry Regiment, 25th Infantry Division of the United States Army. He was just 20 years old when he was mortally wounded in the Republic of Vietnam. Danny was awarded the military’s highest honor, the Medal of Honor, for his heroic efforts in combat. The Medal of Honor was recently donated to the 4th Battalion, 23rd Infantry Regiment Headquarters at the Fort Lewis-McChord Base in Washington where it resides today. Please help us honor Danny and all who serve by participating in this event.
