2017 Purple Heart Day 5K & 10K - Carson City
Add to my calendar Get DirectionsPrint This Event
On August 7, 1782 George Washington created the Purple Heart and now, August 7th, is known as Purple Heart Day. We are celebrating with a Purple Heart Day 5K & 10K. You will get a beautiful purple heart medal that says, All Gave Some, Some Gave All. We have 500 medals available and they will sell out quick so sign up NOW! When: Complete your race any time during August 2017! If you can complete it on August 7, even better! Where: You choose the course and you time yourself (you'll report your finishing time to us). Why: Because we want as many people as we can get to virtually run (or walk) a 5K or 10K and to help honor all Purple Heart Soldiers. Plus, we will be donating a portion of each registration fee (at least 15% of each registration) to the Purple Heart Foundation. Their mission supports a number of programs and services dedicated to helping ALL veterans and their families. Cost: $17. Includes custom medal and bib that will be shipped directly to you. Plus, at least 15% of every entry will be donated to Purple Heart Foundation. *We are in no way affiliated with this charity, we like to choose a different charity for each of our races and are happy to raise funds for them. Medals and bibs will start shipping out mid-July! *THIS IS A VIRTUAL RACE!
