THE STORY:

Run Ranger Run IV(4)

Teams of up to ten individuals pledge to walk, run and/or ride bicycles a combined total of 565 miles in the month of February.  They will raise funds for GallantFew and increase awareness for stated veteran issues.

Veterans continue to battle record high levels of unemployment, under-employment,  homelessness and suicide.  The most recent Department of Labor Statistics from july 2015 show Global War on Terror veterans are 37% more likely to be unemployed than a person who never served and two times as more likely to be unemployed than a Desert Storm era Vetran.  The VA reports twenty two veterans take their own lives daily, and active duty suicides have averaged one per day. We can and do make a difference!

 

Concept

In 2012, 3rd Ranger Battalion veteran US Army Corporal Cory Smith, having deployed to combat twice, experienced having friends killed and wounded and with his own marriage failing decided to highlight the difficult journey home many soldiers have leaving the Army by undergoing a very public and very difficult journey home himself.  Cory decided to run 565 miles in 28 days with holding his daughter Elleigh in his arms the end goal of his run.

 

As a Result

To honor Cory’s incredible effort and to continue the momentum to raise awareness for veterans issues – particularly around divorce, unemployment, homelessness and suicide – we are offering an annual Run Ranger Run event.

 

The Event

Run Ranger Run:  Teams of up to ten individuals will pledge to walk, run and/or ride bicycles a combined total of 565 miles in the month of February.  They will raise funds for GallantFew and increase awareness for stated veteran issues.

 

Key components

- A team captain recruits and forms his or her team.

-  Team goal is to walk, run or ride a bike (or any combination) a total of 565 miles during  February. 

- Teams can be two to ten people.

- Teams are not limited geographically.  It can be a local group that logs mileage together or could be a team spread out across the USA or even overseas.

- Teams can honor a fallen, wounded or serving Soldier, Sailor, Airman or Marine by naming their team in honor of that person, and their team website should be able to reflect that.

- Teams will register and track their progress online

- Teams raise money by getting family, friends and co-workers to sponsor them per mile
