Each year the Run4Greeley selects a local charity to benefit from our race proceeds. We are proud to announce that the 2019 recipient will be Helping Heroes Fly.
The History of Helping Heroes Fly
In 2016, the inaugural year of Helping Heroes Fly, they provided flights for 65 troops. In 2017 that number increased to 129 flights paid for by donors. To date in 2018, 112 flights have been provided as of December 10th. Helping Heroes Fly anticipates that number to increase greatly, particularly as we approach the holiday season.
Helping Heroes Fly
The dream for Helping Heroes Fly is to raise money, primarily through private donations, to provide airfare to enlisted military men and women, enabling them to be home with their families at important times, such as holidays, emergencies, family events or even much needed R & R.
Our military men and women, who are willing to give so much and receive so little in return, simply need to be home with their families at certain times. The hope is to be able to help with this and relieve some of the financial burden for them so that they are able to enjoy their times at home.
With its long, local history, contributions from the Greeley 4th of July race have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for charity. By contributing to the Run4Greeley, you are providing financial support, not just for a few families, but for all of Greeley as well. Let’s continue to support our local community together.
