In its third annual event, Run for the Fallen Colorado & Honor and Remember - CO Chapter are partnering with Honor and Remember Inc. in a special tribute of gratitude and honor for the men and women who have died in military service to America during the Global War on Terror and to Colorado’s Fallen First Responders who died protecting and serving our community.
A Tribute Team of runners, core relay team and support crew, comprised of active duty, reservists, retired veterans, first responders, Gold Star Family Members and patriotic Americans will embark on a 3-day journey from Fort Carson Colorado to Fort Logan National Cemetery. They will be stopping at each Hero Marker, approximate 1-mile intervals to Honor and Remember individually Colorado’s Fallen Heroes, calling out each Hero by name and paying tribute to their waiting Family and Friends of the Fallen.
