Virginia Run for the Fallen

New England
RUN FOR THE FALLEN

August 20 - August 22, 2021

Cushman Park Bernardston MA to Portsmouth Naval Ship Yard Kittery ME

MISSION STATEMENT

Using the model from America's Run for the Fallen 6,000 mile tribute, Honor and Remember Inc. has established the New England Run for the Fallen. It is a compilation of runners and support crew whose mission is clear and simple: To run specific miles for every New England service member killed as a result in serving during the War on Terror including Operation Iraqi Freedom, Enduring Freedom, and New Dawn. Each mile of sweat and pain and each flag saluted is to pay homage to one service member’s life and their family.

The third weekend of August, we run across New England to raise awareness for the lives of those who fought and died, to rejuvenate their memories and keep their spirits alive and to aid in the healing process for the New England residents whose lives have been affected by the war.

We are dedicated to Honor and Remember as we blaze a 137-mile tribute trail to Kittery Maine. One Mission ~ One Team ~ One Tribute

Although we visibly run one marker to honor and remember each fallen hero from the current conflicts, the total run to Kittery Maine represents every service member from New England who laid down their lives for freedom's cause. Thousands have sacrificed to preserve our way of life. And we give tribute to each contemporary hero we remember others who have given the ultimate sacrifice throughout history. New England being rich in the foundation of this country has given many of her sons and daughters.

Regardless of war or conflict, branch of service or method of death, we ultimately run for them all, honoring their service and sacrifice, and remembering that they each gave up a future so that we could have ours. We give tribute to them by name wherever possible and to the sacrifice of the families, they left behind.
