THE STORY:

Run Ranger Run- Team Remo 

Team Remo in honor of Wade Wassenberg. Father, Husband, Son, Brother, Friend and Ranger Buddy in this life and the next. 

 

 

A team 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 (usually 28 days).  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 May 2012 show Global War on Terror veterans are 40% more likely to be unemployed than a person who never served.  The VA reports eighteen veterans take their own lives daily, and active duty suicides have averaged one per day this year – a rate unheard of before now. We can 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:  A team 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 (usually 28 days).  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
