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. For our fourth annual run, walk, and ruck, we invite you to join us in support of the "McClure Division". Christopher McClure is a professor of mathematics at DMACC's Ankeny campus. He was deployed to the Middle East early this January.

We are including a Shadow Run involving soldiers from Christopher McClure’s unit, 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. We also invite the community to meet Randy Brown, a former National Guard soldier from Boone, Iowa. Randy Brown (AKA Charlie Sherpa) recently published a collection of war poetry titled FOB Haiku. He will be speaking at DMACC Boone's gymnasium on March 30th at 7 p.m. where he will present his latest book, Reporting for Duty.

Register online now. 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?
