Announcing the 3rd Annual Memorial Day Virtual Run to Remember

  • Ron LaBrec

The Coast Guard Foundation Run to Remember program honors Coast Guard Fallen Heroes and raises funds for tragedy assistance programs that aid Coast Guard families in their time of need.

Many Coast Guard units, local groups, and partner businesses organize runs, walks, and other activities throughout the year to participate.

One of the best ways to take part if you don’t have a local event near you is to join Team CGF (that’s our shorthand for Team Coast Guard Foundation) in the Third Annual Memorial Day Virtual Run to Remember.

Last year nearly 300 CGF supporters and partners joined in and we want to double that number this year. Teams are encouraged or you are welcome to join Team CGF.

Each year the Run to Remember T-shirt is brought to you in a new color. After many requests we are excited to offer the 2022 shirt in Coast Guard orange.
