Ken Ran for AVET on 9/11

Your candidate, Ken Rhoden, ran a 5k race to support the AVET group on September 11, 2011.  The run kicked off early in the morning from Space Coast Stadium.  The group included runners, walkers, and bikers – some brought their kids and some brought their dogs!  A fun event to support a great group of people supporting our valued veterans!  Here’s a photo of Ken at the finish line (yes, that is 24:54 on the finish clock!)

Candidate Ken Rhoden Walks the July 4th Parade

Ken Rhoden walked the 3 mile parade route along with 10 of his supporters.  The group accompanied a local car club entry which was decked out in red, white & blue banners.  Walkers handed out candy and information about the candidate to the dedicated parade watchers along the route which started in downtown Melbourne and ended at the Liberty Bell Museum.

Following the parade Ken and his supporters participated in the special presentation at the museum including a patriotic sing-a-long and refreshments.
