Backing a Hero
BackaHero.Today is all about supporting local heroes. Heroes' who silently give 24/7 on-duty, doing their job, taking care of-serving-protecting the rest of us. The Heroes' Challenge held in the early morning hours of our nation's Independence Day does just that... a fundraising "thank you" to those past and present soldiers and their families who sacrifice so the rest of us can live free. But freedom is not free. It is hard won and it takes a toll on those who serve and those who love them. Take the Heroes' Challenge by registering today and then getting pledges so you can back a hero and proudly wear your dog tag.
BackaHero.Todayis excited to be joining up once again with Point Man Ministries to host
"The Heroes' Challenge." In 2016 we brought on Scovel Racing to provide "chip-timing"
for Bike & 1/2-Marathon participants, we also added an extra hill to The Heroes' Challenge Run to stretch it out to a half-marathon for a total distance of 14 miles. For 2017 we have added a Track Walk for those that want a smooth flat walk that is NOT timed, as well as a "Virtual Team" for those that want to skip the excerise and go directly to getting pledges and raising money.
