About This Activity

Families of the Shield Presents the Second Annual


Join us along with our sponsors, Walmart, BLUEGUNS®, WA1A@107.1, FM-95 ROCK - NASH FM 102.7- SPORTS RADIO 1560 AM, TROPICAL DESIGN CUSTOM T-SHIRT & RUNNING ZONE for a beautiful morning 5k run/walk to support our local First Responders. The proceeds-profits from this event will help our local Heroes whom have been nominated and selected to be recognized for their heroic acts via the 2016 Valor Awards Committee, to attend its ceremony hosted by the Melbourne Regional Chamber of Commerce. The funds gathered from this race/event, will be utilized to help the offset the cost for the guest of the award recipient, so that he or she, may attend cost free. It is least we could do, for those who do so much and ask for nothing in return.
