The town of Clyde is remembering Michael C. Murphrey, a local soldier who was killed in 2009 during a freedom operation in Afghanistan. A 5k Memorial Run/Walk has been set up to honor his memory and his bravery in giving the ultimate sacrifice.

The 5k Memorial Run/Walk has been set up for September 6th. All proceeds from the event will go to a scholarship fund set up in Michael's name. Registration for the event is open and entries can be dropped off at the Clyde Chamber of Commerce at 106 Cedar Street, Clyde, TX.

Family members of Michael say that they are grateful for the overwhelming support of the community in organizing this event.
