PT with the TROOPS is a fundraiser for Siouxland Freedom Park, organized by Brotherhood Trust & Love and our host, Western Iowa Tech Community College
Here's how it works:
Sign Up to Participate in the 5K Fun Run/Walk!
When You Register- We'll Match You Up With a Battle Buddy* who will be running "with" you!
- *Your Battle Buddy will be a deployed Siouxland service member who will be participating in the 5K at the very same time as you.
Your Registration Fee includes the following:
- Participation in the 5K Fun Run Walk/Run event.
- T-Shirt- Well, two of them, actually. You'll get one when you arrive and sign in at the event. We'll ship your Battle Buddy one along with your "Dear Joe Letter" ahead of the event.
-"Dear Joe Letter" -Send a personalized message to your Battle Buddy. We hope you'll make a connection and develop a lasting friendship with this great American!
- Any "Dear Joe Letter" submitted with a paid registration prior to 12/15/16 will be included with the T-Shirt shipments and will be delivered to participant Battle Buddies prior to the event.
- "Dear Joe Letters" submitted with a paid registration after 12/15/16 will be sent to participant Battle Buddies after the event. The 12/15/16 deadline is intended to ensure the T-Shirt and "Dear Joe Letter" shipment arrives at the APO where the participating Service Members are stationed prior to the event.
-Children under 12 who are registered by their parents are welcome to participate in the 5K Fun Run/Walk for free (free child registration includes 5K only). Parents- You can upgrade your child's registration for $20.00 (there is no early-bird registration discount for child upgrades).
-Additional T-Shirts will be available for purchase at the event (while supplies last) for $15.00 each.
-Registering multiple participants or for a Group, Company, Organization? We will prepare the materials (T-Shirts, Liability Waivers, etc.) for your group in one Registration Package. The Primary Registrant must be present to pick up their group's Registration Package (the Primary Registrant is the individual who adds information on this site during the registration process and pays the registration fees for others in the group).
-Each participant must sign a Liability Waiver prior to participating in the 5K Fun Run/Walk. Parents or Guardians must sign Liability Waivers for Children under 18 years of age.

Will there be an ID Check?
We will confirm the identification of the Primary Registrant. We will only sign in Primary Registrants, or their designated representative (See question titled,"Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?" to learn how a Primary Registrant can designate another group member to sign in their group).
Is there an age limit to enter the event?
There is no age limit. Parents or Guardians must sign a Liability Waiver for Children under the age of 18.
Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Can I update my registration information?
Yes. We strongly recommend updating any participant changes after your initial registration submission. Participant names and ages can be changed after the initial registration submission. However, we are unable to accept changes to T-Shirt sizes and "Dear Joe Letters" once they have been submitted. T-Shirts and "Dear Joe Letters" will be issued and/or shipped as originally submitted.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
No, unless the Primary Registrant is not present. We will check the Primary Registrant in at the Sign-In Table (the Primary Registrant is the individual who adds information on this site during the registration process and pays the registration fees for others in the group).
If the Primary Registrant is not able to attend the event, they should update their registration information on this site prior to the event. If this is not possible, the Primary Registrant should print out their ticket and give it to a designated member of their group. We will only hand out a group's package to the Primary Participant or the holder of the Primary Registrant's ticket.
The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?
See "Can I update my registration information?" above.
Is there a Discount for Military/Law Enforcement/EMS?
If you serve in the U.S. Armed Forces (Active Duty, Reserve, or National Guard), a Law Enforcement officer, or an EMS professional and would like to receive a Military/Law Enforcement/EMS Discount, please contact us at: 605-670-0192 and we'll give you a discount code. When you provide two forms of photo ID (ex. Military ID and Drivers License) as proof of current service at sign-in, we will honor your discounted registration. Discount applies only to individual registrants who are currently serving in the U.S. Armed Forces Service Members, Law Enforcement, or EMS.
