Welcome Gold Star Families to the 5th Annual Massachusetts Run For The Fallen.

Please email or call 1-84-HELP-VETS for additional information. Preference will be given to families traveling from further distances.
This year we have important updates for Gold Star Families.
*All Gold Star Family members must register by August 1st to receive a t-shirt. T-shirts will be ordered well in advance of this years Run and we want to guarantee availability and sizing. If you need assistance registering, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 1-84-HELP-VETS.
*Each year families are welcome to submit changes to their Hero Marker which can be found on the website (please note the that some of the Hero Markers are being added still and we thank you for your patience). All changes should be submitted by August 1st. Please call 1-84-HELP-VETS to request any changes and we are pleased to accommodate your family’s request.
*Each year the official Run For The Fallen t-shirt displays the Rank, First Name and Last Name of your Fallen Hero. Our prayers are that there will never be another Hero lost. This year the shirts will be ordered August 1st and if another Hero is lost after that time we will make sure that their family has a Hero Marker at the Run and their name will be read at the opening ceremony.
