America's Run for the Fallen
The America’s Run for the Fallen team will blaze a tribute trail across our nation, covering 5 months spanning over 6000 miles from San Diego to Arlington National Cemetery, recognizing nearly 20,000 fallen service members since the USS Cole. In one of the most comprehensive tributes ever organized this run will honor every service member who died while serving or as a result of serving since October 12, 2000. Calling each hero’s name out loud mile after mile, every stop will represent a unique chronological date of death. The men and women being honored include every service member who died during the War on Terror while on active duty or as a result of active duty, including all branches of service and all causes of death.
You may join us for the physical run across the nation between April 7 through August 5, 2018 but you can support this cause now by participating virtually. Simply register here and then run or walk a 5k, 10k, or Half Marathon whenever and wherever you want. As a thank you for your support, we will mail you an official America’s Run for the Fallen dry fit race shirt and finisher medal. Shirts and medals will be mailed when you register (not after you submit your results), in case you’d like to wear the shirt for your run to help spread awareness for this amazing tribute that will take place in 2018.
