The Essence of Freedom Run 5k/10k

“Support Our Troops” is a popular slogan. For a few people, sadly, this is where their “support” both begins and ends. For other people, of course, “Support Our Troops” is highly personal. It means: “Support my husband, or wife, or my father, or mother, or my sister, or brother or child” who serves – who may be deployed far away from home, in harm’s way to defend the Constitution, our values, freedoms, and against its enemies.
Such sacrifices are not to be taken lightly; indeed, they are to be commended. The Essence Of Freedom Run is an annual event to raise funds that are desperately needed by the brave men and women both active duty and Veterans, who defend our country in the armed forces. Proceeds for this event will go to local Veteran Assistance organizations (within Illinois). This run is the main fundraising event for the Support Our Soldiers Freedom, Inc. A 501(c)3 organization.
The Essence Of Freedom Run is scheduled for Memorial Day, Monday, May 30, 2016 on the streets of Deerfield, Illinois. Civilian participants will be privileged and proud to run along side military servicemen and women – an opportunity that is rare and exciting!
You can do your part to honor and assist those serving by becoming a proud participant. Register as an individual or form a team. Volunteer or just come out to cheer and let our troops know you say "Thank You" and "We Support You".
