Our goal for the Run to Remember: Fallen Heroes 5K is to create a family oriented fundraiser in memory of our fallen heroes. Like many others who have lost loved ones serving in the military, we received much appreciated help and assistance after the devastating tragedy of losing a member of our family serving overseas. All proceeds earned from this event are donated to The USO Northwest ($20,700 in three years!). The USO NW does an incredible job of supporting military families, and also contributes to other organizations such as The Fisher House Foundation. This fun-run is our way of thanking and supporting The USO Northwest, so that they can continue to help and support our military personnel and families.

We've been sponsored by some great local companies. Please support them as they give back to our community!
