One Small Step
Join the One Small Step virtual 5k/10k/Half Marathon to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the historic Apollo 11 Moon Landing on July 20, 1969, while remembering the astronauts who have given their lives for our nation’s space program. Run or walk whenever and wherever you want to earn this iconic 4″ footprint-on-the-moon medal featuring a 3D rendering of the lunar lander, an astronaut, and the American flag on the reverse side. The attached ribbon includes the inspirational words of Neil Armstrong: “That’s one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind.”
About the Charity
In the wake of the Challenger accident in 1986, the Astronauts Memorial Foundation (AMF) was founded. The AMF honors the past and inspires the future, memorializing those astronauts who have sacrificed their lives for the nation and the space program by sponsoring the national Space Mirror Memorial, and by implementing innovative educational technology programs.
The Astronauts Memorial Foundation captures the technology developed in the United States’ space program and applies it to the field of education. They partner with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration to provide technology training to educators throughout the nation with a particular emphasis on space-related technology. In addition, at The Center for Space Education they offer space-related educational opportunities for individuals, and, in doing so, improve the quality of the workforce in the space industry.
A portion of the proceeds from this virtual race (at least $5 from each registration) will be donated to the Astronauts Memorial Foundation. For more information about this charity or to make a direct contribution, please visit amfcse.org.
