Ways you can help
We need your presence at the Hero Marker. One of the most important ways to honor our Alabama fallen military is to be at the Hero Marker when the run team arrives. The course is a one mile loop so the Hero Marker will be in a single location for the 100 mile journey. These runners need to be appreciated and encouraged as they are investing 2 days and going a distance of 100 miles in honor of our Alabama Fallen and their families. By visibly showing support it energizes the runners and inspires them to continue knowing that there are others who appreciate the effort, not for themselves but for those who they run for.
Gold Star Families are encouraged to stand by your Hero's Marker, Bring your Honor and Remember personalized Flags, banners, photos, posters, friends, family and co-workers. The runners will stop at your marker and honor you and your loved one. We will post, under your hero's name above, the exact location, day and time the runners will arrive.
