Downtown Columbus goes purple for National Purple Heart Recognition Day. On Saturday, August 7 at 9 p.m., we’re partnering with the Military Order of the Purple Heart for their evening 7th Annual Buckeye Purple Heart Foundation 5K Run and Walk. This year’s race honors Purple Heart recipients and Franklin County residents Major Albert Maroscher and CWO Richard Holycross. These men both served their country during the Vietnam War and gave their lives so their brothers and sisters could live.
