We have promised to Never Forget our Fallen Heroes.
Through all wars and conflicts, our military heroes have sacrificed their lives for our freedoms.
Each December, through Wreaths Across America, the headstones of our fallen heroes are adorned with a fresh balsam fir wreath. Additionally, it is Wreaths Across America's mission to "Remember Our Fallen U.S. Veterans, Honor Those who Serve, and Teach Children the Value of Freedom”.
Join Wreaths Across America and the Trail Life Troop VA-0122 at New Life Christian Church in their fundraising efforts to raise funds for 400 wreaths to be placed on more than half of the known veteran heroes’ headstones at Columbia Gardens Cemetery (VACOLU). We are working hard exceed our goal to ensure that a wreath will be placed at all of the 750 known veteran headstones in the cemetery. With your registration, a wreath is automatically bought is amazing opportunity, and $5 will go to supporting the troop for special events.
The Honoring Heroes Challenge can be completed anytime between October 11 and Veteran’s Day (November 11). The 3.1-mile challenge is yours to create! Run, walk, hike, swim, or ruck (carrying a heavy load during the challenge) at a favorite location of your choosing!
