The Hero Campaign
The Run to Remember was founded in 2002 to honor the extraordinary heroism, commitment and sacrifice of the victims, survivors and rescuers of the events of 9/11. Since then, the race has raised over $400,000 for the Baltimore City Police Foundation and Baltimore City Fire Foundation. The organizations assist families who have lost loved ones in the line of duty and we proudly support them.
For the 3rd year, we are running the Hero Campaign - a way to recognize the individuals who are everyday heroes in our lives - sponsored by Mizuno. We know there are individuals out there who do great things each and every day keeping our communities safe and inspiring many to be the best they can be. We think it's time to say "thanks."
Tell us about your hero and enter them to win FREE RACE ENTRY AND running gear from Mizuno!
Nominations will be accepted through August 27, 2017.
On August 28th, we will post the finalists to our website and ask our community to read their amazing stories and VOTE for their favorite hero. All finalists will receive 2 FREE entries into the race and a Hero Race Shirt from Mizuno.
Voting will be closed on September 9th and the winner(s) will be announced at the awards ceremony of the Mercy Run to Remember 5K & 11K presented by Mizuno on September 10th.
The Fine Print
Finalists will be chosen at the discretion of Charm City Run and Mizuno staff. Winners will be chosen by the Charm City Run community voting and announced at the race awards ceremony.
