This year's run is in honor of Lt. Commander Raymond O'Hare who was a Navy pilot and was killed in 2000 in a training accident. His daughter Liz is studying Biology and Chemistry at Mount St. Mary's University and Katie is studying Communications at the College of Charleston. Both are attending school with the help of Children of Fallen Patriots. Their mother Colleen is a passionate runner and has participated in many races in support of Fallen Patriots.
Team Fallen Patriots is a virtual event where you can crawl, walk, run or ride in support of Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation. Do whatever type of activity you like in your local area - walk with your family, do a local fun run, crawl through the mud on a Tough Mudder or ride your Harley or road bike with your friends. Or just round up a bunch of friends to donate. Share your photos with us on social media #teamfallenpatriots.
The goal for Memorial Day 2017 is raise $100,000 to support our mission to provide college scholarships and educational counseling to military children who have lost a parent in the line of duty.
