Registration coming soon! Save the date for May 30th, 2015!
Inspired by US Navy SEALs (Frogmen), the mission of the Joggin’ for Frogmen 5k race series is to activate communities from across the world to honor the sacrifices of our service members and veterans and to support the families of our fallen heroes. Our races bring communities together to celebrate the lives of America’s fallen and to express our deep gratitude to those still serving. All proceeds benefit The 31Heroes Project, Travis Manion Foundation, and Travis Manion Foundation through their One Team One Fight partnership.
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. All Tadpole Trotters will wear a Tadpole Trot bib and will receive a Tadpole Trot medal upon completion of the Tadpole Trot. 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.
Remember to “Get your boots on!” We have partnered with our friends at The Boot Campaign and encourage everyone to honor our troops by wearing your boots while you run. If you don’t already have a pair of boots, you can purchase them from The Boot Campaign shop, knowing that your purchase will support this wonderful organization! Net proceeds from the sales of the boots will go to support the Boot Campaign’s five initiatives – Housing, Jobs, Wellness, Family Support and Urgent Assistance. Please select “Joggin’ for Frogmen” from the Boot Campaign drop down menu when you purchase your boots from their site.

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 30, 2015!
