2008 Run for the Warriors--May 17

You will never have this much fun doing anything you feel this good about

If you can run
If you can walk
If you can roll…

…join me at the 2008 Run for the Warriors!

The Run for the Warriors is a community event. It’s a chance to have fun. It’s a chance to be inspired. It’s a chance to recognize some brave men and women and their families and to say thanks for their sacrifices. Above all else it’s a chance to enjoy a Carolina spring morning and beautiful views of the New River at Marine Corps Base, Camp Lejeune.

The races are 1 mile, 5K, and 10K. You will meet great athletes. You will meet brave warriors. And you will meet a community that understands the cost of freedom. A community that recognizes that one of the costs of freedom is our unstated obligation as citizens to remember the sacrifices of the fallen.

Join Scott Rigsby, the first double amputee to complete an Ironman Triathalon.

Join Carlos Moleda, Navy Seal and wheelchair athlete, World Championships Ironman Triathalon winner.

Join thousands of runners, walkers, and wheelers who will turn out to help Hope For The Warriors fulfill their promise, “No sacrifice forgotten, nor need unmet.”
