It was the fourth annual Run for the Fallen at the Veterans Memorial Park Trail in Terre Haute.

Nearly 7,000 flags were places around the trail, in honor of each soldier who had died fighting in the War on Terror.

Organizers also placed banners with each soldiers name along the route.

They say its just a small way to remember those who have given the ultimate sacrifice.

"Have a visual reminder of how many individuals have been impacted and politics aside and everything else aside, just think about those who died and whoever chosen to serve and their families and their loved ones,"said organizer Olivia Goulding.

A flag was also given to Donna Griffin at the event.

Her son Dale was killed by a roadside bomb while serving in Afghanistan back in 2009.
