FALLEN HEROES 5K: A Run to Remember
Welcome to the official website of the Yakima Run to Remember! Our Fallen Heroes 5K strives to honour the military heroes who gave everything so we could enjoy the freedoms and benefits of living in our great country.
THE 2016 RUN TO REMEMBER
On Saturday, July 9, 2016 we'll be having our third annual fun run/walk to honour our fallen warriors and raise money for The USO! All proceeds will be going directly to The USO Northwest so they can continue to support our men and women in uniform. Our FUN run/walk is a great time to bring the family, your patriotic spirit, and enjoy some exercise in the sunshine!
On the 23rd of April in 2013 our lives were forever changed. CPT Aaron Blanchard was killed in action in Logar Province Afghanistan. Since that tragic day we have seen some highs and the lowest of lows, but out of the ashes of sorrow arose a new purpose in life.
On June 21, 2014, more than 150 runners and walkers participated in our fun run! We had a great time running and walking to honour our heroes, and distributing raffle prizes. The National Guard attended to support our participants and the worthy cause... Most importantly, we were able to send $5,500 to the USO!
"For the Fallen"
Laurence Binyon, 1914
They shall grow not old
As we that are left grow old
Age shall not weary them
Nor the years condemn
At the going down of the sun
And in the morning
WE WILL REMEMBER THEM
