Texas Wesleyan celebrates Veteran's Day on campus

Please make plans to join the Student Veterans Organization for two events to celebrate Veterans Day! Celebrate the Marine Corps 242nd Birthday in pure Marine Corps style, with a good old fun run and cake. 

Birthday Run

Join the 2nd Annual Marine Corps Birthday Run at 6 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 10. We'll meet in front of the McFadden Science Center and the run is about 1.5 miles long. Group runs are encouraged, but each team member must sign up individually.

The run is free but we ask that please bring a donation of any amount to participate in the run. Half of the proceeds from the run will be donated to the Tarrant County Young Marines of Fort Worth). You can purchase a shirt where half of the proceeds will benefit the Tarrant County Young Marines. The first 30 volunteers will receive a free shirt.


RSVP today to attend the Veterans Day Luncheon from 1-3 p.m on Friday, Nov. 10 in the Baker Building.

The event is free to all Veterans and guests. Non-veterans can purchase a ticket for $10. There will also be a raffle for all veterans which will include gift cards and SVO swag.

To RSVP and learn more, please contact Tristeza Ordex-Ramirez, student veterans organization president, or Trey Spencer, the organization's treasurer.

Donation checks can also be made out and mailed to the Texas Wesleyan Student Veterans Organization:
