On March 17th, members of the Flying Gophers student group will compete in the elite ROTC division of the Bataan Memorial Death March/Marathon. Last year, we brought the 1st place trophy to the University of Minnesota, and this year we’re aiming to keep the traveling trophy home.
The Bataan Memorial Death March is a challenging march/marathon through the high desert terrain of the White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico. This event is conducted in honor of the heroic service members from Minnesota, Wisconsin and New Mexico who defended the Philippine Islands during World War II, sacrificing their freedom, health, and in many cases, their very lives.
We ask for your support to help us with the costs associated with this event. All gifts to this page support the U of M Air Force ROTC Flying Gophers Fund.
Thank you very much for your consideration and support. Ski-U-Mah!
