Be a part of a global movement to show your support for Coast Guard Fallen Heroes and their families.
Memorial Day Virtual Run/Walk: The Coast Guard Foundation hosts a virtual run/walk on Memorial Day weekend (May 28-May 31) to honor our Coast Guard Fallen Heroes and raise support for our tragedy assistance programs that support Coast Guard families in their time of need. You simply set a goal, complete the run or walk, and send us a photo to mark your activity. You can join us for this Memorial Day event, or complete your own virtual walk or run at any time that is convenient for you.
Host an Event: As local and state guidelines change, you may be able to host a Run to Remember event in your community. Visit our event registration page to sign-up today.
Buy a T-Shirt: One of the primary ways people join in the Run to Remember efforts is through purchasing a commemorative t-shirt bearing the names of the fallen. With a $25 donation, you receive a 2021 t-shirt in light heather blue, with this year’s logo and an American flag design on the back. Special thank you to Leidos, our 2021 Run to Remember corporate sponsor.
