Military Fundraiser 

MN's Military Appreciate Fund (MMAF) is a state-wide fundraising initiative by the citizens of Minnesota for the Minnesota military personnel and their families. The group focuses on support for families affected by deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan since 2001.

This Saturday, June 21, is the 4th annual MMAF 5K walk/run. Leading the event this year will be the family of PFC Ed Herrgott, the first Minnesotan killed in Iraq. You can participate in this walk/run by downloading the entry form here. Sign up your friends and relatives, take a walk, and contribute extra support to the families of our best and brightest. Added bonus: participants get free tickets to the Twins game at 1:00 PM on Saturday.

Weather should be great! If you've wanted to help our military, this is an excellent way to let our soldiers' families know they are special and we appreciate their sacrifices so the rest of us can continue to live in the freest nation ever envisioned.
