On August 7, 1782 George Washington created the Purple Heart and now, August 7th, is known as Purple Heart Day. We are celebrating with our third annual Purple Heart Day 1 Mile, 5K, 10K, 13.1 & 26.2. You will get a beautiful purple heart medal. The quote on the medal says, “No person was ever honored for what he received.  Honor has been the reward for what he gave.”

Plus, we will be donating a portion of each registration fee (at least 15% of each registration) to the Purple Heart Foundation. Their mission supports a number of programs and services dedicated to helping ALL veterans and their families.
