Every Independence Day, a Portage County 5K run/walk raises money to show support for veterans in the area.
The fourth annual Stevens Point Running of the Flag helps raise money for the Portage County Veterans Relief Fund.
The group provides resources and assistance to 1,950 veterans each year.
"Let them know that there’s people in the community that want to help support the veterans," said organizer Christina Montgomery, "That we’re so thankful for everything they’ve done for our country."
The non-competitive race raised more than $4,000 dollars last year, and they hope to triple that total this year.
