What is Joggin’ for Frogmen?
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.
I have been a professional firefighter since 1989, I know what it means to be dedicated to something bigger than yourself and to serve your community. I’m drawn to foundations that support our military, to help those who give so much to preserve the freedom that we enjoy. I’m humbly honored to be the Race Director for Joggin’ For Frogmen of River City, Kentucky 2014. I want to stand behind our military and their families in appreciation for their sacrifices, to help those in need, and to serve who have unselfishly served us. Join us and our community in celebrating our unending support and commitment for these exceptional warriors and their families who make this the greatest country in the world.
