“This event is for a great cause,” said Master Chief Petty Officer Robert Berry, the battalion commander at the Coast Guard Training Center. “Not only will it be a fun event that offers a scenic run that any level of runner could enjoy, but the money raised will help build the only memorial in the country that collectively honors our fallen shipmates.”

The CPOA is sponsoring the event for the Coast Guard Enlisted Memorial Foundation, Inc., in order to raise money for planning, designing and building a fitting memorial that will represent the immense sacrifice of more than 1,500 Coast Guard enlisted men and women who lost their lives in performance of Coast Guard missions.

The Coast Guard Enlisted Memorial Foundation is a non-profit organization consisting of volunteer active duty, reserve, auxiliary, retired service and civilian members. For more information about the CGEMF, click HERE.
