FAQ

How can I volunteer?
Anyone who is a Team Wright-Patt member may volunteer! There are two ways to volunteer but both require contacting the event organizer CGOC. 1) Anyone who wishes to volunteer and run may be a unit POC or assist with set-up/tear-down. 2) Anyone who only wants to volunteer may be a unit POC or assist with set-up/tear-down, medical, water-stations, or event security. Please click "Questions?" under race contact info below and submit a response to say you'd like to volunteer and the team will reach out to you with details.

How does this honor 9/11?
There will be a brief ceremony at the start line to kick-off the run and walk. The ceremony will feature a guest speaker, honor guard presentation, live rendition of the national anthem, and a prayer and moment of silence led by a base chaplain. This year, we would like to honor individuals involved in 9/11 with commemorative signs along the route. If you would like to dedicate a sign to someone, there is an option during registration to submit information (this could include name, age, involvement in 9/11, and any details about their lives). You can also email malia.stephens.1@us.af.mil with information and/or photos.

Who can participate in the event? Can I bring my family?
