Remember the life and work of John F. Kennedy during this memorial 5K run/walk through the streets of downtown. Runners have the opportunity to carry a LED torch as a symbol of "how one person in a community can light the darkness through an individual act of service." The post-race celebration includes a sandwich and drinks for all participants, plus a beer garden. Proceeds benefit Special Olympics Texas, an organization originally founded by Eunice Kennedy Shriver, President Kennedy's younger sister.
