TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - You can be part of honoring men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice.
Run for the Fallen happens at ISU's Memorial Stadium every year around Memorial Day.
On Wednesday, volunteers placed nearly 7,000 flags.
Each flag represents a military member who has lost their life in Iraq or Afghanistan since 2001.
People can run or walk to the trail to reflect those lives lost.
"It started in 2009, just to honor my friend Dale Griffin and his family. At his funeral, I kind of made him a promise that I'd never forget him," Event Director Olivia Goulding said.
The flags will be there through May 30th.
Organizers hope to log one mile for each fallen hero.
