May is National Military Appreciation Month in the United States. It is the sacrifices that our men and women of the US Armed Services make daily that protect our beloved land. Run for HEROES is a 5K run and walk to show our support to those who currently serve, have served, and for those who have given the ultimate sacrifice.
CompetitorME is donating 100% of the proceeds to The Summit Project. The Summit Project (TSP), a nationally recognized, Maine based, 501c3 service organization started by Bangor native, Major David Cote in 2013, is a living memorial that pays tribute to fallen service members from Maine who have died since 9/11/2001. The mission of The Summit Project is to honor Maine’s newest war casualties and the faithful spirit of all Mainers.
Any service member, past or present, is encouraged to wear camoflage as a symbol of their service. Together, we’ll make this a fun and memorable event!
