AUSA ROTC 5k Sole Challenge

The AUSA ROTC 5K Sole Challenge is a team building event for all ages benefiting ROTC programs in Minnesota and to support AUSA. AUSA is the U.S. Army’s professional association. They are the voice for the Army on Capitol Hill and offer support for active duty and veteran soldiers and their families. Vessey Chapter of Minnesota is the largest AUSA Chapter in the United States not attached to a military base.

The mission of this event is to safely conduct an annual 5K race to develop cadets and midshipmen, build esprit de corps and support physical fitness in the community. Proceeds from the race will be used to support AUSA activities and programs.

If you or your company are interested in sponsoring our race, please email Mr. Alberto (DJ) DeJesús at
