We’re excited to host our second local event this year! We will be marching for 22 hours to raise awareness and support for military families struggling with post traumatic stress. Opening ceremony with the VFW post to begin at noon on November 10. We will be walking laps in the Activity Center until 10am Sunday November 11. We will also be holding a silent auction, free-will supper, kids event, and will have a DJ keeping us moving into the evening hours. We will conclude our event in time to attend the Sargent County Veterans Day ceremonies held at the Forman City Hall at 11a.
Carry the Fallen is a free Active Heroes sponsored event in which participants will walk, run or ruck walk at the Activity Center. The distance is determined by the amount of time one spends participating. Active Heroes promotes 3 hour, 6 hour, 12 hour and 22 hour ruck marches. A participant doesn’t have to stick to those times, and one may decide to participate for thirty minutes or all twenty two hours.
Active Heroes is a 501 (c) 3 organization whose goal is to raise awareness to veteran suicide and help bring it from 20 veteran suicides a day to 0! The funds go to properties being developed for veterans to retreat and regroup. Please feel free to come and go as you wish and participate as long or as short that you desire. Active Heroes awards a military style patch for participation and raising a minimum of $100. You may bring the money and turn it in at registration, and raise the money after the event and still earn a patch. The patches are designated at 3, 6, 12, and 22 hours of participation, and are not available for purchase.
