1 Day for the K.I.A. 5K/10K Run

Our primary fundraiser for the Living Legacy Scholarship is the 1 Day for the K.I.A. 12 Hour Endurance Run. We also hold a 5K alongside the 12HR run as a way of raising funds for our big Spring Event.

If you can’t make it to the race, you can still support the Living Legacy Scholarship by signing up as a Virtual Runner.  Virtual Runners will be mailed a bib and t-shirt so you can go for a run anywhere in the world.  We have had runners from as far as Hawaii and England signed up as Virtual Runners! Please share your experience by posting a picture of you after your run on Instagram Facebook or Twitter to help spread awareness for our cause.


To commemorate the fallen families tied to The Ohio State University and raise awareness for those affected by war.
