More than 100 people laced up for the annual Syracuse University Veterans Fun Run Friday morning.

The 5k run kicks off the day’s events which includes a Veterans Day Ceremony at Hendricks Chapel.

Active duty service members along with faculty, staff and students showed up for the 6:30 a.m. start to show their support for veterans.

“It’s very important to take time out and recognize those who have given of themselves, their time, their energy, their resources to support our country and our democracy and what we stand for,” said LTC. Jason Warner, professor of Military Science and Department Chair.
