Donnie Edwards hosts walk to Commemorates Battle of the Bulge’s 76th Anniversary
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – An Honor Walk commemorating the 76th anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge will be held Sunday, hosted by a foundation founded by retired San Diego Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Donnie Edwards and the La Jolla-based event management platform Events.com.
While 5 kilometers is the suggested distance, participants can walk any distance they would like. The start time is up to the individual or group. Organizers are encouraging participants to select a time to walk that will best facilitate social distancing.
Organizers are also encouraging parents to teach their children about the Battle of the Bulge.
Walkers can register at www.bestdefensefoundation.org. There is no cost to participate. However, there are a number of options to sign up and make a donation to the Best Defense Foundation or make a contribution to participate in the walk and receive commemorative items, including World War II history books autographed by World War II veterans, T-shirts, experiential opportunities with Edwards.
The Best Defense Foundation helps veterans and their families, including bringing World War II veterans back to foreign battlefields to help them find closure and camaraderie with their brothers in arms.
KUSI’s Madison Sinclair was live in Coronado with Donnie Edwards live on Good Morning San Diego as the event got underway.
