The Red, White & Blue 5K Run/Walk is an annual event that takes place as part of our Badger State Games each year.  The run/walk begins and ends at the Central Wisconsin Convention and Expo Center and follows a scenic trail throughout Rothschild, WI.  Along with the 5K the event is host to vendors, military vehicles, live music, and speakers. Runners and non-runners are invited to come and enjoy a fun day while supporting a great cause.  The Red, White and Blue 5K donates all proceeds to the Never Forgotten Honor Flight of Wisconsin.  Many veterans who have already had the honor of going on the honor flight, or those who hope to in the near future join us for this great event.

We are sorry to say that we will not be having the 2020 Veterans Benefit Expo.

In the interest of safety for our Veterans and their families and our Vendors this tough decision was made.

We very much look forward to the 2021 Veterans Benefit Expo & Welcome Home & Stand Down Event
