May 30, 2010 - Patriotic Americans across the country will be joining Military Missions, Inc. for the second year to participate in a program that prompts participants to become more aware of those who stand in the gap to provide a safe America for all of us. Not only do participants have a chance to honor our heroes, but they can also get in shape at the same time. This program allows everyone to do something positive to make people more aware of the unsung heroes in our communities.
Never miss a local story.
The concept is simple. Take STEPS in honor of your hero and share your experience. For every mile you “STEP” you can submit your mileage and share about your hero.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE? Anyone! If you walk, jog, or run, you are already taking “STEPS”. Why not honor one of America’s heroes while you exercise? From accomplished athletes to children to senior citizens, you are qualified to take STEPS to HONOR our heroes.
DO I HAVE TO RUN? No! If you are taking “STEPS” then you can participate. Walk around the block, on the treadmill, around the track or even on the elliptical machine. Keep track of your mileage and honor someone at the same time you are staying in shape.
WHO CAN BE HONORED? Firefighters, Military, Law Enforcement. This includes veterans, those currently serving, and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
WHEN CAN I START? The program begins on Memorial Day, 2010 and ends of September 11, 2010.
HOW DO I GET STARTED? Go to http://stepstohonor.blogspot.com/ for information.
DOES IT COST ANYTHING TO PARTICIPATE? No, the program is free. It is our hope that this program will cause people to stop and think about those brave men and women that put themselves in harm’s way to protect all of us. There is no fee to participate, however, if you want to help us get the word out about our program, you can make a $15 donation and we will send you a STEPS to HONOR t-shirt. Proceeds will be used to meet the needs of our deployed military and their families through ongoing programs at Military Missions, Inc.
