This year marks the 75th anniversary of the Bataan Death March. Fighting First Productions, a WWII living history and cinematography group, and the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 236 host the Bataan Death March Memorial Walk, beginning at Palmer Park in Janesville and ending at Jones Dairy Park in Fort Atkinson. This 20-mile walk will give participants a chance to experience one-third of the distance that POWs had to endure in 1942.  A ten mile walk is also available. The route follows the popular Wisconsin Ice Age Trail and Bike Path for a convenient, fun, yet challenging experience. All are welcome to enter and proceeds will be donated to American ex-prisoners of War.
