5K Halloween Run

Cadets conduct annual ROTC 5K Halloween Run for charity in Vermillion, SD

“ Activities such as Ranger Challenge and the Bataan Memorial Death March have influenced me greatly. They have genuinely increased my desire to maintain the highest level of physical fitness possible. It has also instilled in me a "never quit" mentality that will positively influence my leadership abilities once I'm in the Army. Any Cadet, no matter what branch he/she is interested in would greatly benefit from the teamwork and skills learned through these activities. ”
