WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RACE?
A virtual race is a race that can be run, jogged, biked, swam or walked from any location you choose. You can hit the road, a trail, treadmill at the gym, the sidewalk at the park, through a state park, you can even find yourself on the beach. You get to complete your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself. Is the distance too long? No problem! You can break the distance up over multiple days to make it more manageable. You can upload your results or send them to us. You can share your time and experience with others on social media. You can even compete with a friend across the country. And your medal will be shipped directly to you. Complete a virtual Kids PT 1.5, Run 4 Families, 20 mile bike or TRiathlon during one of our up-coming events!
Family of Heroes (FoH) was created because we LOVE running, connecting with runners and cyclists! And even more, we LOVE to support the men and women of the Armed Forces and their FAMILIES! It’s been said many times that a service members’ support team is the family that stays behind to keep the home front running while they’re away. Sometimes these family members left behind are alone, some are left with multiple dependents, and some even go through great loss, without the love and needed closeness of that missing military member. As FoH was created, there was a realization that people could be encouraged to get out and get moving, AND make a difference throughout the world by creating fun and unique events to raise money for various families that are impacted by the separation that is caused by many forms of military operations. FoH is on a quest to help provide food, shoes, school supplies, water, toys and other needed things to people throughout the world and it is all happening by YOU being part of the Family of Heroes. You become a hero to families, and in turn, become part of that family by getting out there and putting one foot forward… putting one feeling forward… that feeling of belonging, to the FAMILY. We love being involved in the running and cyclist community and have made so many new running and biking friends from all over the world. Thank you so much for participating! We are making a difference…one race at a time! With each virtual race we hold we choose a family to raise funds for.
HOW WE SUPPORT
Family of Heroes was founded off of the genuine principle that military women and men have a great support network, and that needs to be applauded. Our founder, an Airmen himself, made common practice of saying “I’ll tell my wife you said so”, when thanked for his service from a stranger. He realized that the family that stood behind him was the true backbone of our Armed Forces. Without the multitudes of families stepping up to fill the void of a military member who’s away from home, those in uniform couldn’t defend what they stand for. You are part of the family when you participate in an event. When you register for a race, lace up your shoes, and share your experience after you’ve finished, you have joined that Family… the Family of Heroes. PLEASE send us your story, share you experiences, and together we can help make a difference.
