We have partnered with the amazing organization, Running4heroes.org to raise money for this meaningful cause.
Zechariah Cartledge was born with the gift of running. He was raised with an appreciation for First Responders and all they do for the community. As he grew older, Zechariah decided to help the families of our fallen First Responders in a meaningful way.
Zechariah runs one mile for every First Responder who makes the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty and this virtual race will follow his lead.The only requirement is to complete 1 mile of either running or walking during the challenge. You can also sign up for the virtual 5k which includes a shirt! Both the challenge and the 5k participants will receive a dogtag once the challenge is completed. For those who would like to do more, you may complete as many miles as you wish during the challenge. Miles can be entered daily to keep track.
Run or walk (at least) one mile just as Zechariah does in honor of our fallen heroes. This event will run from July 4 through September 30. You may choose to do more but it is not required. This is your challenge and should be customized to your level of fitness.
Run or walk on your local trails or in your neighborhood--just get out and run or walk (at least ) a mile to finish this motivating challenge! This challenge is more about the charity, then the miles, but being motivated is always on our minds!
For this race, you will receive a dog tag as your swag and as a reminder of your accomplishment of bringing awareness to our partner, Running4Heroes.org.
We are working directly with Running4Heroes and want to bring awareness to this amazing charity, as well as raise donations for them.
