He’s been my best friend since the day he was born. He’s my kids’ Hero who fights bad guys to keep us safe. He’s the reason why I am bringing Joggin’ For Frogmen to Imperial, Nebraska. He’s my Hero and beloved little brother. I cherish my freedom and all past, present, and future men and women fighting for it.
Imperial, Nebraska is a small agricultural community with a big heart. Everyone has someone close to them or knows someone in our community who was or is serving our country. Everyone has the American flag in their yard or driveway flying high and proud, followed, of course, with a flag of our beloved Huskers! Something I love about Imperial is the willingness to pull together to help someone out. Whether its raising money for the FFA, sports programs, individuals fighting cancer, or to help the protectors of our freedom, our community lines up to offer what help they can. We hope to see you at our race on May 27, 2017!

Inspired by US Navy SEALs (Frogmen), the Navy SEAL Foundation’s Joggin’ for Frogmen Race Series brings communities and families together to jog in honor of the Naval Special Warfare community and their families.
All participants age 7 and older will run in the 5k. Following the 5k is a “Tadpole Trot” for kids ages 6 and under. All registered 5k and Tadpole participants will receive a Joggin’ for Frogmen race shirt at packet pickups. All registered 5k participants will wear a 5k bib and will receive a 5k finisher’s medal/bottle opener when crossing the 5k finish line. Tadpole Trotters need to register for the Tadpole Trot, but can do the 5k with their parents at no extra cost.

Please note that while Tadpole Trotters can run in the 5k, they will not receive a 5k medal unless they have on a 5k bib, which requires additionally registering and paying for the 5k.
