8th Annual Memorial Run for Ryan

  • Brottier Commons

This 5k is held in honor of Sgt. Ryan Lane, USMC. Sgt. Lane gave the ultimate sacrifice to our nation when he refused a promotion allowing him to deploy with his fellow Marines for a second time. Sgt. Ryan Lane was killed in action during this second deployment. His love of country and sacrifice for it sparked patriotism among students at Duquesne University who started this run in his honor in 2009 and has been growing ever since!
