WEST COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - The West Columbia and Cayce Jaycees are sponsoring a 5-kilometer run and walk to support the nation’s military veterans and first responders.

Opening ceremonies begin Friday at 6 p.m., with the run and walk starting at 6:30 p.m.

The run starts at the West Columbia Riverwalk Park and Amphitheater, winds through Cayce and returns to the Riverwalk along the Congaree River.

Proceeds from the event support charities that assist those coping with physical or emotional injuries resulting from their service. The annual event was founded to honor first responders who gave their lives in the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and the military who have served since then.
