Letter from Race Director - Ivy Losey

I am honored to be the Race Director for the 8th Joggin’ for Frogmen race here in Virginia Beach. Military service is not only my family’s philosophy but it has also individually shaped our lives and is the purpose for our continued commitment to the service community and their families.

As a veteran, mother of two U.S. Coast Guard Academy graduates, and a spouse of a U.S Naval Special Warfare retiree, I can attest to the value of community support and the importance of showing up for the NSW community. The families of our warfighters are a key part of what makes the community great, perpetuates stability, and safeguards the Naval Special Warfare (NSW) ethos. NSW families do this silently yet maintain strength and dignity. It is a special, often thankless, position they hold and they have my deepest gratitude.

It is through my role as race director that I hope to bring greater community awareness to the needs of the NSW community and encourage you to help us broaden race participation. While your financial support allows us to continue the Navy SEAL Foundation programs across a broad range of warfighter and family initiatives, it is also the case that you can show your support by simply showing up.

It is important to highlight that the Joggin’ for Frogmen race series was started by a Navy SEAL spouse as a positive, family-oriented event to strengthen community support for our NSW heroes and their families. This year we continue to expand the reach of the race’s mission while focusing on bringing the community of support closer and honoring both our warriors and their families with participation.

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.

Joggin’ for Frogmen is proud to partner with GORUCK for the 2020 Race Season!

Ruckers will receive the 5k shirt, medal and a custom GORUCK Finisher patch
