Project Remember Missouri and Answering the Call are teaming up again for another memorable run across the state of Missouri! From April 4th-10th, 2020, Blue Springs Police Officer, endurance athlete, Keegan Hughes and friends, will honor fallen First Responders and raise money for Answering the Call (501C3). This year, the Project Remember team will be running 189 miles in 7 days, wearing FULL DUTY UNIFORM; one mile for every First Responder killed in 2019. The 189 mile run through Missouri, will begin at the Missouri Law Enforcement Memorial in Jefferson City, Missouri. As he crosses the state, Officer Hughes and team will be meeting up with additional First Responders, including Firefighters, EMT’s, and a variety of Law Enforcement divisions (Missouri Highway Patrol, Sheriff’s Departments, and local Police Departments) to present flags of honor to the families of fallen First Responders.
On Saturday, April 11th, join Officer Keegan Hughes and team for our 2nd Annual 5K to celebrate another successful run honoring our fallen First Responders. Thanks to our generous sponsors, 100% of your registration fee will be going to Answering the Call. Answering the Call was founded in 2015 to support all Kansas City metro area First Responders in a time of need. This 501 © (3) was established to link community support to local First Responders when they suffer a severe duty/non-duty related injury or illness. Answering the Call is a source of not only financial aid but a community awareness to support First Responders and their families.
This is a kid-friendly event so bring the whole family for a fun celebration and help us raise money for Answering the Call!
