About this Virtual Run: It’s time to lace up and honor the sacrifice – Boots for Troops is back! Ruck, Walk, or Run in honor of our fallen military service men and women and in support of their surviving families through either a 5k, 10k or Half Marathon distance. Combat boots are highly encouraged but not mandatory; running shoes are welcome. Run, walk or ruck your selected distance whenever and wherever you want to spread awareness and support the cause. All participants will receive a 3.5″ medal in the shape of a combat boot with an attached Medals of Honor dog tag.
All proceeds from this virtual fundraiser will be used to help off-set expenses to send surviving family members (Gold Star Families) and veterans to the 2017 Bataan Memorial Death March. Thank you for helping us to honor the sacrifice!
About the Charity: Medals of Honor is a national 501(c)3 awareness campaign. We give the endurance/race community a tangible way to thank and give back to the families that lost loved ones while serving our Military. Through Medals of Honor, racers can compete in honor of a fallen U.S. service member and donate a finisher’s medal to the surviving family.
We cultivate a healing environment that helps to bridge the gap between surviving families, veterans and civilians. We promote healing through endurance type sporting events, while promoting patriotism and gratitude for active duty, retired and veteran military personnel.
HONOR — Fallen Men and Women of the United States Military
HEAL — The visible and invisible wounds of war
CONNECT — Active duty Military, Veterans, Civilians and Surviving families through endurance sports and fitness.
