Community members can register for races by committing to raise funds for Hope For The Warriors®. Team Hope For The Warriors® provides each Team member a fundraising page that can be personalized and the ability to contact friends and family through e-mail campaigns. Many of the races on this list sell out; Team Hope For The Warriors® provides athletes another avenue to participate while making their race more meaningful. Fundraising requirements vary by race.
“Many of our Team members first join because our charity bib allowed them to register for a sold out race,” Jenlene Nowak, Team Hope For The Warriors® Director said. “Once they join, many stay on the Team because they love the camaraderie and because they are equally committed to supporting military families. “
