North Adams' Up Front for DeMar Run Returns Nov. 13

Community submission
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. – The annual Up Front  for DeMar 5K race and 1 mile walk will be held on Nov. 13, 2022. 
 
This annual event raises funds for the SPC Michael R DeMarsico II Scholarship Fund and honors Michael and all who serve and have served. SPC DeMarsico was killed in action on Aug. 16, 2012 while serving in Afghanistan. "DeMar" to his fellow battle buddies, served at the front of his battalion searching for improvised explosive devices. The young specialist discovered 16 IEDs, saving many men in his unit, before stepping on one.
 
In the days and weeks that followed Michael's death, his community came out in full support of him, his service, and his family. This annual event allows the community to continue to do that and help ensure Michael and his sacrifice are not forgotten. 
 
The race begins at Veterans Memorial in North Adams at 9 a.m. and ends at the American Legion. People can register online at https://racewire.com/register.php?id=13211
