What is the definition of a Patriot?

According to Webster it is one who loves and supports his or her country.

But we would like to add a little more to that definition.  A Patriot is also someone who loves and supports his friends and family.

That is who Chris Pepe was and what he will always be remembered as...A Patriot.

Join us on Saturday April 18th for the Patriot Run in Newark in honor of Captain Christopher S. Pepe US Air Force.

Chris was a huge supporter of Pat's Run in honor of Pat Tillman.  Chris and his friends would go out to Arizona every year to run and support the great cause.  We thought it was only appropriate to have a 4.2 Mile Run/Walk.

The money raised will go to a scholarship fund for high school students in Chris' name.


*Participants will receive a Patriot Run hat.

Why 4.2 Miles?

Every year Chris and friends would fly out to Arizona to run in Pat's Run.

It is a 4.2 mile race in honor of the Pat Tillman.  Pat was a Patriot.

On the evening of April 22, 2004, Pat’s unit was ambushed as it traveled through the rugged, canyon terrain of eastern Afghanistan. His heroic efforts to provide cover for fellow soldiers as they escaped from the canyon led to his untimely and tragic death via fratricide.
