This event was created to commemorate those that we lost, those that stepped up, and those that continue to fight on and after the events of September 11th 2001. We also created this event so that the people of the community and surrounding areas could dedicate the day to someone in their lives that is their hero in any way. Everyone picks someone they are running in honor of, or in remembrance of, and design their shirts for them. After the race we have homemade food and a raffle. This is a trail and pavement course. Food, t-shirt, raffle, and medal are all included in the registration fee.
Unfortunately this year we all have many reasons to participate in the KVFD Remembrance run/walk. This year the Keene Valley Fire Department will be dedicating the event to Law Enforcement. We support you and appreciate all that you sacrifice and do for our communities. Participants: You will see changes in the t-shirt design, medal design, optional additions on the course in remembrance of those lost in the line of duty, as well as a donation option to C.O.P.S ( a charity that helps spouses and children of officers lost in the line of duty).
