Social distancing is keeping us from many of the formal events with which we would ordinarily mark the milestones of our lives. Fort Lee’s Army Community Service wants the community to know that although we’re unable to gather together for the 10th anniversary of the Run for the Fallen, this does not mean that the sacrifice of fallen service members has been forgotten. In fact, we encourage you to participate in our special Virtual
Run for the Fallen, September 12 - 13
. The Virtual Run for the Fallen gives all of us the opportunity to honor those who fell during service to their country while showing support of the families who’ve lost a loved one.
If you would like to submit a photograph of your fallen military member for display along the run route, please email the image to firstname.lastname@example.org
by August 31.
