About the Race
At the Gary Sinise Foundation, they serve our nation by honoring defenders, veterans, first responders, their families, and those in need.
They do this by creating and supporting unique programs designed to entertain, educate, inspire, strengthen, and build communities.
When crises occur, Firefighter, Police, and EMTs put their own lives at risk to save others. They answer the call, rush toward danger, and lead the Way. Money raised from the Back the Blue 5K Virtual Run will help provide help to critical funding for emergency relief, training and essential equipment to ensure these heroes perform to the best of their abilities. It will also help those that are severely wounded in the line of duty by building 100% mortgage-free, specially adapted smart homes, as well as home modifications, mobility devices, and adapted vehicles to restore their mobility and independence.
Your support is instrumental in not only making this event a success but also in helping the people who protect your community every day. The Back the Blue 5K Virtual Run will take place May 18-25, 2019. By sponsoring this event, you are showing your support to first responders across the country. We appreciate you!
