The 6th Annual ASA Sponsored Run For The Warriors® is a race that honors the sacrifices of the men and women wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan, their families, and the families of the fallen. The race coincides with the ANESTHESIOLOGY® 2015 annual meeting and marks the sixth consecutive year of ASA sponsorship.

“Hope For The Warriors® is extremely grateful for all the support the ASA community provides to the Run For The Warriors® national race series,” said Robin Kelleher, Hope For The Warriors® President. “Each year it helps expand our outreach efforts to restore hope to military families around the country.”

General registration for the run is $40, $25 for veterans and active duty service members, $10 for children 10 and under, and free to Gold Star families and wounded warriors. Same day registration will be available. Awards will be announced and presented to the top three male and female overall finishers for the 5K, followed by age group top finishers.
