Hunt Heroes Foundation Supports wear blue: run to remember Virtual Memorial Day Event

El Paso, Tx – Hunt Heroes Foundation, the non-profit organization founded by Hunt Military Communities (HMC), is excited to announce its support of the wear blue: run to remember Memorial Day event. wear blue: run to remember is a non-profit running community that honors the service and sacrifice of the American military and their families through active remembrance and meaningful relationships. Since 2018, Hunt Heroes Foundation (HHF) has supported wear blue: run to remember through fundraising, generous donations, and annually supporting this Memorial Day event

This year for the first time ever, wear blue: run to remember is partnering with Team RWB to hold the event virtually, to ensure the safety of all participants. Participants are encouraged to walk or run wherever they feel comfortable and in accordance with their local guidelines for social distancing. Each participant can either run in honor of a fallen service member they would like to honor or will be  given the name of one, which they can then write on a printable bib available on the wear blue website. Participants are asked to speak their hero’s name on Memorial Day and take purposeful steps to serve as a living memorial for those fallen heroes. HMC is encouraging residents at all 49 installations throughout the country to participate in this year’s event.

“We value our partnership with wear blue: run to remember and the opportunity to support its mission on Memorial Day, in light of the difficult times our country is facing,” stated John Ehle, President of HHF and HMC. “Our partnership with the military community enables us to spread the wear blue message while encouraging our residents to remember and pay tribute to fallen heroes in this meaningful way.”

HHF encourages growth and development by funding projects that address community challenges in the areas of health, education, housing, and overall community support. Its focus is to improve the quality of life for military families who sacrifice so much day-in and day-out.

“We’re so excited to partner this year with Team RWB and once again with the Hunt Heroes Foundation and Hunt Military Communities and happy we could adapt our Memorial Day event despite the current circumstances in our country.  This event is so critical in honoring those Service Members who have paid the ultimate price,” stated Lisa Hallett, Executive Director and Co-Founder of wear blue: run to remember. “Since the Global War on Terror began 7,030 Military Members have been killed in action, it is our mission to have all of those fallen heroes’ names read aloud on Memorial Day. The support from Hunt Heroes Foundation and all those who participate will help us achieve that goal.”
