To all of our Blue and Gold Star Families:
Again, we would like to thank you so much again for your support of Run for the Fallen RI’s first annual event. We are so honored to have the opportunity to remember your fallen hero and to recognize you as their family member and friend.
We are just over 3 months away from our first run/walk. As we have promised from our first update, we want to ensure that all of you are apprised every step of the way and have an understanding of the day’s event.
1. Schedule. Our website is updated daily (sometimes several times during the day) with all of the latest information about our event. The latest schedule can be found here: https://runforthefallenri.org/event-info/schedule-of-events/.
2. Family/Friend Apparel – Sizes Due June 15, 2014. For the day, we want to ensure that our participants can easily recognize all of the family members and friends of our heroes. Please don’t forget to send us the sizes for up to 5 people per hero. The size ranges are Adult Unisex Small through 2XL and we have the ability to order Youth sizes upon request. Your shirts will have the Run for the Fallen Rhode Island logo on the front and the words ‘My RI Hero is [Insert Name of Your Hero]’ on the back.
3. Event Info. During the event, each hero has a memorial marker. They will be placed ~400m apart in alphabetical order. As a family member and friend, you have the option of participating in the event by running/walking or standing by your hero marker.
4. Family Luncheon in July. Finally, we are solidifying plans for our 1st Annual RFTF RI Family Luncheon in July. Our next update will have all the details and we hope that you will be able to join us.
If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to contact us at email@example.com. We read every single e-mail and appreciate all of the feedback about the website and the event.
Thanks so much for your time. This is a small way to show our support to you. We will never forget the sacrifice of our RI heroes.
