Arkansas Run for the Fallen

Each March, since 2012, in an apolitical reflection of remembrance, a team of runners embark on a 146 mile run to honor every Arkansas service member who has died while serving since September 11, 2001. The run begins in Ozark, Arkansas and ends 146 miles later on the steps of the state Capitol. Each mile of the run is dedicated to an Arkansas Hero. The run team stops at each marker where they present an American Flag and a biographical card in honor of a fallen service member who has died while serving since 9/11/2001 in an effort to create a 146 mile memorial trail through Arkansas. Media coverage of past events can be found here. The public is invited to join our core run team as they complete the journey.

Wreaths Across America

Arkansas Run for the Fallen is very proud to participate in Wreaths across America, a nationwide effort to honor veterans by placing a wreath on their headstone at Christmas. In 2016, through many donations, Arkansas Run for the Fallen's fundraising group was able to provide wreaths for over 5,000 Arkansas veterans buried at Arkansas veteran cemeteries. We also sponsored and delivered wreaths for the heroes that we honor in the memorial who are buried in the state of Arkansas and across the country. For each wreath sponsored Wreaths Across America will make a donation back to Arkansas Run for the Fallen to help honor Arkansas Fallen Heroes and support the families of Arkansas fallen service members.

The mission of Arkansas Run for the Fallen is to raise awareness for the native Arkansas military service members who have died while serving on active duty since September 11, 2001. 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.
