EVENT DATE: Sep 17, 2016
Run for the Fallen CT is an annual running event located in Middletown, CT which honors our military heroes who have made the ultimate sacrifice for us all. This year we are pleased to announce that our run will be held at the Connecticut Trees of Honor Memorial (CTHM) located at Veterans Memorial Park in Middletown, CT.
It is an all-day event designed around a 65KM run that dedicates one kilometer to each of the fallen 65 men and women from CT. The run is divided into eight laps beginning and ending at Veterans Memorial Park, home of the Connecticut Trees of Honor Memorial (CTHM). There will be a large memorial ceremony in the afternoon upon completion of the final lap. This year, the ceremony will include an official opening and dedication of the CTHM.
Our event is attended by many Gold Star families who come out to honor their loved ones. So gather all your friends and family and come on out to let them know that we will not forget their loved ones either. There will also be a walking area, D.J, kids activities and a free cookout.
While there are no mandatory fees or donation requirements we encourage all to form a team for the military or veteran based charity of their choice. If you do not wish to form a team please consider donating to one.
