If you cannot attend the 6th Annual 5K Walk/Run for the Heroes, but would still like to contribute you can make a donation using secure Paypal below. Please be sure to add in the team name that you would like your donation to go to. Thank you.
There will be a timer available for registered runners who would like to clock their time at the finish line.
Please note that the video below is from 2015. While the purpose of our fundraiser remains the same we wanted to ensure that this years 5K date (October 8, 2016) is not confused by the date included in the video below. We wanted to keep this posted as it is put together beautifully and reflects the mission we have set out to accomplish since our inception 6 years ago.
All of our fundraisers have one goal in common: to raise money so that we can build a memorial to honor Missouri’s fallen military personnel who were killed in action or a casualty of war during Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom and the Desert Storm/Shield wars; this is our Phase Two project.
Our Phase One project, the Gold Star Pavilion, was erected at Jefferson Barrack Park in 2014. To see more pictures, and learn more about our nonprofit, please visit our About section on this website.
