We are a group of runners, walkers, and support crew with a mission.
To run in honor of every Massachusetts Service Member Fallen since September 11, 2001. We run to raise awareness for the lives of those who died, to rejuvenate their memories and keep their spirits alive. MARFTF seeks to honor those who have fallen under the American Flag.
