Why do we ask for donations?
We are seeking sponsors/donations to help offset the cost of event expenses and to assist in providing support, hope and healing to those who grieve the death of a loved one regardless of relationship or circumstance. Although we try to get as many services and provisions donated as we can there are some things such as accommodations for the Core Run Team and Gold Star Family members, event T-shirts for the runners, escorts, and Gold Star Families, and nutrition supplies etc. that we may have to purchase.
When we started back in 2009 it was a two day Run - in 2011 we had to extend to three days and in 2015 we had to extend again to four days!
This means that our necessary expenses to enable the Run continue to increase dramatically - in 2018 for example:
We wish to extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone for their very generous donations and we wish to assure you that 100% of your donation will be used to cover the necessary expenses of The Mission... .
