MEDINA – A new 5-kilometer race on Veterans Day will be a benefit for veterans in Orleans County.

Organizers Jennifer Thom and Sarah Levanduski-Surdel are creating Operation Honor, a non-profit organization, to raise money for veterans. Proceeds from the first race will go to the Warrior House in West Shelby, which provides a hunting retreat for wounded vets and children who have lost a parent in war.

The Medina Village Board approved the 5k during its meeting on Monday. The race will start at 11 a.m. on Nov. 11 at the Junior Wilson Sportsmen’s Club on Bates Road. The route goes through village and ends at Junior Wilson.

Operation Honor is seeking sponsors and participants for the 5k. For more information, check the group’s Facebook page.
