Wear Blue: Run to Remember serves as a living memorial to the service and sacrifice of our Fallen Warriors. The group walks/runs together once or twice a month, and participate in running events around the community to raise awareness and to “remember” our Fallen Soldiers. At each meeting, they begin with a moment of silence, then those that would like, call out the name of the Soldier‘s they are running for.
There are approximately 250 Surviving Family Members of over 100 Fallen Soldiers who reside in the 11 counties surrounding Redstone Arsenal. It is their desire to run in honor of each of these Soldiers and in support of their Families left behind. Some members run in honor of Fallen Soldiers they have once served with or have known.
They are now recruiting participants whether you want to run, walk, or just support the cause! If you are interested please call or email Charity Watral at (256) 542-1208; firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, to purchase a shirt or other Wear Blue: Run to Remember merchandise go to http://www.wearblueshop.org/.
If you do not wish to participate by running they are looking for volunteers to help with holding flags along the course that honor a Fallen Soldier. They are also looking for volunteers to help with a “Wear Blue: Run to Remember” water station.
