Master of Ceremonies - Deanna LeBlanc

deanna-8x10I’m honored to be the Master of Ceremonies for this year’s Joggin’ For Frogmen 5k and Tadpole Trot.

As a military spouse, I understand at a personal level the strains of deployments, the stresses constant comings and goings can have on the family, but also understand the pride we all have in our servicemembers and the jobs they do protecting us overseas.

Thanks to the great work of the Navy SEAL Foundation, for every unique obstacle an NSW family may face (and there are many!), there is a helping hand to reach a solution. I’ve seen firsthand the great work of the Foundation, it’s a cause I believe in deeply and I hope this year is the best fundraising effort yet!

See you on the course!
Deanna LeBlanc

What is Joggin' for Frogmen

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 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.
