THE 6th ANNUAL “RUN FOR THE FALLEN”
REGISTER NOW – and spread the word!!

We are thrilled to once again RUN FOR THE FALLEN – remembering those who have served, are serving, and those who have fallen in battle for our great country. We also keep in mind those who worry at home while their loved ones are doing their duty. No one is in this alone and you may choose to run in honor of someone!

THE RUNNER

I’m here for you at Cleveland High to pay homage to your name.
I see Gold Star Families crying their pride can’t ease the pain.
The sun is now rising over the horizon; a new day has begun.
One that will be filled with promise as you and I begin to run.
I will run with you my fallen comrades with others from all around.
To HONOR and REMEMBER your sacrifice was so profound.
It may be a long journey, yet there will be a tribute in every stride.
For you will be my inspiration as your spirit runs by my side.
Running around the track I can hear your family’s cheers.
They’re for you my fallen comrades and so are all their tears.
Passing by a grateful nation, I see their pride begin to swell.
Reaffirming my belief the American Spirit is alive and well.
Farewell my fallen comrades you were beside me from the start.
Your memories are in my thoughts, your sacrifice in my heart.
I’m humbled by your presence and honored to be here too.
Next year I’ll be back at Cleveland High to run again with you.

–Composed by Naval Veteran William Lawrence Kraemer / Army Veteran Michael McGlynn
