Do We Have to Keep Our Team to 10?
The quick answer is no. However, we do ask that you try to keep your teams to ten so that if/when we offer contests and make team comparisons there is
quality between the teams. You are able to cap your team at 10 by going to your fundraising page, clicking 'Manage Team’ and then clicking on 'Edit Team
Preferences'. Remove the checkmark from the box for "I want other people to help me fundraise'.
Are We Limited to Running?
We encourage you to run, walk or bike. Run Ranger Run is about never giving up on each other and completing the mission together.

Teams of up to ten individuals pledge to walk, run and/or ride bicycles a combined total of 565 miles in the month of February. They will raise funds for GallantFew and increase awareness for stated veteran issues.
Veterans continue to battle record high levels of unemployment, under-employment, homelessness and suicide. The most recent Department of Labor Statistics from july 2015 show Global War on Terror veterans are 37% more likely to be unemployed than a person who never served and two times as more likely to be unemployed than a Desert Storm era Vetran. The VA reports twenty two veterans take their own lives daily, and active duty suicides have averaged one per day. We can and do make a difference!
In 2012, 3rd Ranger Battalion veteran US Army Corporal Cory Smith, having deployed to combat twice, experienced having friends killed and wounded and with his own marriage failing decided to highlight the difficult journey home many soldiers have leaving the Army by undergoing a very public and very difficult journey home himself. Cory decided to run 565 miles in 28 days with holding his daughter Elleigh in his arms the end goal of his run.
As a Result
To honor Cory’s incredible effort and to continue the momentum to raise awareness for veterans issues – particularly around divorce, unemployment, homelessness and suicide – we are offering an annual Run Ranger Run event.
