VR September 25-27, 2021: Gold Star Honor Run

Virtual Run by Marine Parents

Virtual Run: Gold Star Honor Run

September Finisher's Medal

The last Sunday in September is Gold Star Family Day and in September our run is to support those whose loved one has died in service to our country. Participate virtually with other military and Veteran supporters and Veterans around the globe.

YOU choose the fitness activity and distance, whether biking, running, walking, or your favorite exercise equipment! Start slowly; add distance for each consecutive virtual run. For a “virtual run” there is no travel involved; you’ll complete your activity in your own community, your local gym, or even your own backyard.

We encourage you to light a luminary to honor Gold Star Families on the last Sunday in September. To learn more about the Luminary Initiative, click here.
