Wear Blue: Run To Remember, a national, nonprofit organization committed to building a running community that honors the service and sacrifice of the American military, is once again proud to announce its annual Memorial Day Run. On Monday, May 28, 2018, more than 20,000 runners and walkers around the world will become a living memorial to America’s fallen heroes. Teams will meet at various locations worldwide to participate in this run, including South Cumberland Elementary School in Cumberland County at 7 a.m. The run/walk will begin with a Circle of Remembrance during which the names of military members killed in war are called out. Runners and walkers will then commence the memorial run north on the sidewalk alongside Lantana Road. Participants may run or walk any distance they choose. “The event gives people all over the world the opportunity to honor our service members who selflessly gave their life for our freedoms,” said President, Co-Founder and Gold Star Wife Lisa Hallett. “This Memorial Day run will serve as a moving memorial of remembrance from all branches, and all wars, including World War I.” Runners and walkers can join the Memorial Day mission by registering now at www.wearblueruntoremember.org at no cost. Participants will be provided the name of an American service member who died in battle.
