We are once again offering runners and supporters of the Patriot Run the opportunity to honor a friend, family member, or loved one who has made the ultimate sacrifice or who has been wounded while fighting to preserve our freedom on foreign battlefields.
If you are registering to run online you will be offered an opportunity to give a $25 honorarium to personally recognize a Wounded Warrior or a Servicemember who has been killed in action who you would like to run either the 5 Mile Classic or 1 Mile Fun Run in honor of.
If you are registering by mail or are not able to run either race for whatever reason but would still like to honor and recognize a Wounded Warrior or Servicemember who has been killed in action, you may still do so by downloading and completing the following form: Downloadable "In Honor Of ... Request Form," and mailing it to us at: ECU Army ROTC, 204 Christenbury, Greenville, NC 27858, Attention - Patriot Run. Please make checks payable to: ECU Army Cadet Association.
The names of those you choose to honor will be listed in the appropriate category below as well as on a scroll that will be printed on the back of the commemorative race t-shirts. We will also conduct a roll call before the awards ceremony during which we will call off the names and recognize and honor the sacrifices of all the honorees and their survivors.
All honorariums must be received by February 8, 2013 to ensure inclusion on the race t-shirt. We will still accept honorariums after February 8, 2013 and recognize them at the awards ceremony and on this website but we cannot guarantee their placement on the race t-shirt after that date.
