    When you say that, “All proceeds are used to support our events.”, What does that mean?


  2. Thank you for your inquiry. We intend to keep our event at a low cost to all participants. Since we have made this decision, we rely on donations to support our event. During the event, the families and friends of our heroes will wear Gold shirts. We are allowing each hero to have up 5 shirts for their family and friends. We use the monetary donations to pay for these shirts along with water, sports beverages, facility use, tents, tables, port-a-potty rentals, snacks, and advertising for the event. We also plan of having memorial markers for each hero at several points throughout the walk/run and these cost money to create. Additionally, we intend to host a lunch for the families during the summer and we plan on having a luncheon for the families and participants after the event. Donations are used to offset these expenses. If there is an excess, we do not intend to keep these funds and will contribute the funds to a RI charity that we state in our bylaws. However, we are not only looking for monetary contributions. We welcome donations of snacks, water, napkins, ice, and utensils to support our luncheon. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns. We are standing by to answer. Thank you again for your interest in our event.
