The Marine Raider Foundation invites you to join us for the 2nd Annual 5 for a Hero Virtual Challenge. Run, walk, hike, bike, swim, row or paddle 5 miles over Memorial Day weekend to honor our fallen MARSOC heroes.

Please visit our Memorial Wall https://marineraiderfoundation.org/fallen-heroes/ to learn about each of these brave men.

Registration is FREE & opens up on May 1st!  Sign up, choose your hero or heroes to honor, create your fundraising page and invite your friends and family to support your 5-mile trek.  Fundraising pages will remain open until June 15th, giving you plenty of time to earn some great incentives including:

  • Raise $250 and earn a Marine Raider Foundation patch
  • Raise $500 and earn an Under Armour short-sleeved Marine Raider Foundation technical t-shirt
  • Raise $1,000 and earn a pair of Oakley sunglasses
  • Raise $2,000 and earn a Marine Raider Foundation race kit (cycling, tri and running kits will be available)

In 2021, over $28,000 was raised to help support Marine Raiders and their families!  Participants were as young as 7 and as wise as 74, included families, friends and co-workers, and 17 people raised $1,000 0r more, earning some great swag that included Oakley sunglasses!

This Memorial Day weekend, log 5 miles to honor and remember Marine Raider heroes.

  • Log your miles from Friday, May 27th to Monday, May 30th
  • Complete all 5 miles at once or break it up over four days
  • Mix up how you log those miles – walk, hike, jog, run, swim, row, bike!  As long as the only “motor” is your heart, lungs, legs and arms, you’re good to go!
  • Make it a family or team affair, or do it solo!
  • Dog walks count, too!

Please take a moment to say their names
