On March 16th and 17th 2013, in an apolitical reflection of remembrance a team of runners completed a 130 mile run to honor every Arkansas service member killed in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom. To view media coverage of the 2013 event click here.
Each mile of the run is dedicated to an Arkansas Hero. The run team stopped at every marker, presented an American Flag and a biographical card in honor of every fallen service member in an effort to create a 130 mile memorial trail through Arkansas.
Check back soon for updates and plans for Arkansas Run for the Fallen 2014.
The mission of the Arkansas Run for the Fallen is to raise awareness for the native Arkansans who fought and died supporting the Global War on Terrorism (GWOT). The purpose is also to provide support, hope and healing to families grieving the death of a loved one in military service regardless of relationship or circumstance of death. We support organizations that enable the healing process for Arkansas residents whose lives have been affected by the GWOT.
