The Coast Guard Foundation's Run To Remember is a worldwide movement that honors Coast Guard heroes who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service of their country. Each year, thousands of people participate in road races, memorial walks, and other types of fitness events to pay tribute to the lost members of the service.
Throughout the year, individual Run to Remember events are held across the country near Coast Guard units and bases, to honor and remember the service’s Fallen Heroes and raise support for tragedy assistance programs. These events honor the brave individuals who gave their lives so others may live. One of the primary ways people join in the Run To Remember efforts is through purchasing a commemorative t-shirt, bearing the names of the fallen.
We also host nationwide virtual events for Memorial Day in May and Gold Star Mother’s and Family Day in September, and all are invited to participate where you live and work.
The Run to Remember program is successful because of the many dedicated volunteers who plan and organize events, and the intrepid supporters who participate across the country and purchase t-shirts. It is also successful because of our generous partners who are dedicated to the Foundation's work. We are especially grateful to Leidos, which has been the official corporate sponsor of the Run to Remember since 2020.
