About this Virtual Run: On the morning of February 2nd, 2013 Navy SEAL Chief Chris Kyle and his close friend Chad Littlefield got in Chris’ truck with a Marine veteran for a day trip out to Rough Creek Lodge in Glen Rose, TX. The day was to be spent at one of the ranges there at RCL shooting guns and bonding…to help that very troubled Marine Corps veteran. Betrayal and tragedy struck when that Marine turned a gun on Chris and Chad and killed them there where they stood.
The Fallen Heroes Memorial Run’s goals have ALWAYS been to honor and remember Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield, and help raise money for veteran-oriented charities that have shown a solid track record of dedication to the veteran community and fiscal responsibility. We want to raise awareness for this tragedy and the ultimate sacrifice made by all these men.
The physical Fallen Heroes race was late in 2018 (hence the “2018” on the medal), but you can participate virtually anytime in February of 2019. Please join us for this virtual race to remember and honor Chris and Chad!
