On August 7, 1782 George Washington created the Purple Heart and now, August 7th, is known as Purple Heart Day. We are celebrating with a Purple Heart Day 5K & 10K. You will get a beautiful purple heart medal that says, All Gave Some, Some Gave All. We have 500 medals available and they will sell out quick so sign up NOW! When: Complete your race any time during August 2017! If you can complete it on August 7, even better! Where: You choose the course and you time yourself (you'll report your finishing time to us). Why: Because we want as many people as we can get to virtually run (or walk) a 5K or 10K and to help honor all Purple Heart Soldiers. Plus, we will be donating a portion of each registration fee (at least 15% of each registration) to the Purple Heart Foundation. Their mission supports a number of programs and services dedicated to helping ALL veterans and their families. Cost: $17. Includes custom medal and bib that will be shipped directly to you. Plus, at least 15% of every entry will be donated to Purple Heart Foundation. *We are in no way affiliated with this charity, we like to choose a different charity for each of our races and are happy to raise funds for them. Medals and bibs will start shipping out mid-July! *THIS IS A VIRTUAL RACE!
