DMACC's In My Boots 5K was created by Sean Taylor in 2014, and is now organized by the In My Boots Student Group. The In My Boots Student Group aims to raise community awareness of the struggles that many American service men and women encounter after returning from combat. In 2020, for our 7th annual run, walk, and ruck, we invite you to join us in support of Iowa's currently deployed men and women.

We are including a Shadow Run involving soldiers deployed in overseas units, running in conjunction with our event. DMACC Boone's Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society chapter will also be holding a food drive during the race. All food collected will be donated to local shelters.

Online registration will be starting soon. To donate, use our Sponsorship Form. Those who donate over $100 will be listed on the back of the runners' t-shirts.

Won’t you join our service men and women in the assistance of their comrades-in-arms?
