Run For The Fallen 9/24

 

IN OCEAN CITY 
Thursday Afternoon 
SEPTEMBER 24TH 
 
 
The New Jersey Run For The Fallen Foundation is an organization of runners and their support 
 
teams whose mission is to run one mile for every New Jersey resident in the armed forces who 
 
has been killed during combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. Heading north from Cape May, 
 
the runners briefly pause at each mile marker in homage to a specific service member and their 
 
family. The group will stop and stay in Ocean City at the end of the first day. The Run will continue 
 
over the next day three days, until they reach the Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial in Holmdel, NJ. 
 
the military runners will stop at each of the Hero Markers listed below and a very brief ceremony 
 
will take place. 
 
We ask that as many Ocean City area residents as possible come out to one or more of the 
 
Hero Markers identified below to support the runners and reflect on the sacrifices of these 
 
service members and their families.
