Guam - John Gerber's Marine Corps Drive Memorial 5K Run/Walk takes place on Saturday at the Governor's Complex in Adelup. Showtime for the run is at 5:15 am with go-time set for 6am. The fee is $10 per person if you register before the 28th or sign up on race day at a cost of $12 per person.

"The family decided that we would do a 5K Run/Walk in his memory," said his sister-in-law Liz Gerber. "And because he did the Marine Drive walk from Anderson to Naval Station it was to rename Marine Drive to Marine Corps Drive. So that's how we decided to just do a 5K run."

Proceeds raised from the 5K will go towards the Pacific War Museum. The museum is open daily from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Those who take part in the event will get to see some of the things the museum has to offer with a display of war memorabilia.

John's widow Mel said, "It starts in Adelup at the Governor's Complex and it goes all the way down to Asan Park and loops around the parking lot and then back up to Adelup."
