Join the Run for the Fallen on Sept. 15

RYE — On Sept. 15, Run for the Fallen NH will hold its third annual event honoring all New Hampshire service members who lost their lives since Sept. 11.

The run is held at Odiorne Park and anyone can participate. Take a ride on the trolley, walk, run or bike any portion of the 12-mile course, lined with all of New Hampshire military heroes’ photos and family members. A special gathering happens after the public event for the families.

Finders Keepers will be there to allow any gold star child to create their own “Hero Bear” free of charge. These bears can be filled with special charms and momentos. While Finders Keepers is donating the bears, they are asking for help from the public. They need more sponsors to help acquire the decorations, ribbons, and flags to make each bear special and unique.

A Hero Bear has a secret pouch near its heart. The idea is that a child picks special things to put in the pouch, little reminders of good times. No one knows what is inside the bear except the child.

The cost to sponsor an individual Hero Bear is about $20, but any amount is appreciated. Money or material donations can be left at either Finders Keepers location in Exeter or Derry, or through BuffmanProject.org.

Registration details and information about the event may be found at RunForTheFallenNH.org.
