The Jared Van Aalst Memorial 10K/5K and Kids' Mile Run, held Saturday in downtown Columbus, raises funds for the Master Sgt. Jared Van Aalst Memorial Foundation, an organization that provides academic scholarships to students in the name of Van Aalst, who was killed in action in Afghanistan in 2010.

Last year's run raised $7,500 and funded five scholarships for students in Georgia, New Hampshire and Florida.
