Virtual 4 Our Freedom 5K

June 2020 | Virtual

After careful consideration, the ParadeRest Board of Directors and the 4 Our Freedom 5K Race Committee have made the decision to hold the 10th annual 4 Our Freedom 5K run/walk virtually in the month of June.

This annual tradition is open to runners, walkers, and everyone in between. Race participants have the opportunity to run/walk in honor of a fallen local hero, in conjunction with ParadeRest Virginia’s Finding the Fallen project, or for a loved one of their choosing. Registration is now open!

This annual fundraiser provides support to local organizations that directly serve our military, veterans, and their families that live in Central Virginia. Visit the 4 Our Freedom 5K website to learn more about this year’s virtual event, register to run/walk, or donate.
