I’d like to introduce wear blue: run to remember, a national, nonprofit committed to building a running community that honors the service and sacrifice of the American military. wear blue: run to remember was founded by a Gold Star spouse, Lisa Hallett, who lost her husband John while he was fighting in the Global War on Terror. At the time of his death, she had three children, a three-years, one-year, and three-weeks old. Lisa used running as a way to handle her grief. In the midst of a very difficult deployment in which forty-one service members sacrificed their lives, fellow military spouses joined her, forming wear blue: run to remember. Since its inception in 2010, more than 500,000 military members, family members, Gold Star families, veterans, retirees and civilians have participated in wear blue events.

Every year, wear blue: run to remember organizes a Memorial Day run which includes more than 20,000 runners and walkers around the world who become a living memorial to America’s fallen heroes.

The wear blue Memorial Day run uses the power of community and the accessibility of running and walking, for community members to honor generations of America's fallen heroes. This year’s run highlights the 100th anniversary of United States’ entrance into World War I. It will do so by reminding people to Make Memorial Day Your Mission…Unite in Remembrance.

As a registered nonprofit, EIN 27-2165561, that never charges its participants, we would greatly appreciate if your company would consider supporting our local run being held at Craig Ranch Regional Park 851 W. Lone Mountain, N. LV on May 29, 2017, (blue: run to remember is a 100% volunteer led organization and every donation received will help guide our participants through their journeys of remembrance.) We encourage you to learn more about our organization by visiting www.wearblueruntoremember.org.
