As part of Armed Forces Day activities in May each year, military dependents here in the United States, in Bahrain, Greece, Puerto Rico, Germany, Japan, Iceland, England, and Italy will participate in America's Kids Run.
The annual event began in 1986 as Junior Bloomsday, the child's answer to the annual Bloomsday race that so captivates the Inland Northwest in early May each year. Mike, whose own boys were too young for Bloomsday in 1986, noticed that despite their ambitions, most children just couldn't manage the 7.46-mile Bloomsday course. So he decided a Run for children would capture the excitement of the annual Bloomsday run; thus Junior Bloomsday was born.
