Lincoln Land Community College’s Veterans Club invites runners and walkers to participate in the 7th annual Brian McMillen Memorial Run/Walk Saturday, May 24 beginning at 8 a.m. on the LLCC Springfield campus. The event offers a 5K run/1-mile walk and a 10K run.
The Run/Walk raises funds in support of the LLCC Brian McMillen Veterans Scholarship and other charities. Run/Walk participants can also support their local high school athletic programs through the Brian’s Challenge Grant. The $500 grant is presented to the high school athletics department that has the highest number of runners/walkers participating in the Run/Walk. Participants do not need to be high school athletes.
Brian McMillen, an LLCC alum and Illinois State Trooper, served as a Technical Sergeant in the Air National Guard and spent two years of active duty with the Air Force in Saudi Arabia and Romania. He was pursuing a master’s degree when he lost his life at age 24 in the line of duty with the Illinois State Police.
