Running with the RED,WHITE and BLUEPosted on 7/1/2018

The Stride & Ride Committee and Tactical Team wants to Thank those of you for participating and/or donation to the 1st Annual Freedom Flag 5k Celebration On the Charles. 

Truly an amazing day!! Not only did people came out in support of the event but they did so in 92 degree weather, carrying the American Flag to put one foot in front of the other for those no longer here to do so and for those who continue to serve and preserve the Freedoms we endure. We are so excited, that we are already leading the way to set a date for next year. We will keep you all posted on the date which will again be right before the 4th of July to kick start your Pre-Independence Day celebrations.

By coming out and supporting Freedom Flag 5k July 1, 2018 you not only helped support Stride and Ride mission of Honoring Fallen Heroes, Military Members, and First Responders but it also allows us to donate funds raised to Military and First Responder Charities that help Gold Star Families who lost a loved one in military service, Wounded Veterans, Active Duty Military, Veterans, First Responders and their Families. 

Stride and Ride Relay embodies the hope that those lost will never be forgotten; those still serving, our Veterans, and First Responders will be supported; and to bring America Together United in our Hearts for the Greater Good.
