While we can’t be together for group events or activities at this time, we will all come together to remember our Coast Guard fallen heroes and families on Monday, May 25.
What is a Virtual Coast Guard Foundation Run to Remember?
Each year the Coast Guard Foundation Run to Remember brings together thousands of people to accept those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country, and together we honor their memory through road races, memorial walks, and more.
But this year, because of limits to group gatherings, we find ourselves unable to host running and walking events. To keep the spirit of the movement alive, we are hosting a virtual event over Memorial Day weekend, and asking our supporters to participate in whatever way they can. Whether you run on a treadmill, jog around the neighborhood or walk around the block, this event is an ideal way to participate in the Coast Guard Foundation’s 2020 Run to Remember on Memorial Day.
Special thank you to Leidos, our 2020 Run to Remember corporate sponsor.
Last year thousands of men, women and children, both military and civilian, answered the call to honor fallen Coast Guard heroes. And thanks to their outstanding endeavor more than $50,000 was raised for the Coast Guard Foundation’s Fallen Heroes Fund.
