About This Activity

The Freedom Run 5K/10K is hosted annually by Georgia Southern University’s Army ROTC program in support of organizations that assist current members of our military and veterans alike. The proceeds from the 2016 Freedom Run will benefit the Folds of Honor Foundation and assist with funding the day-to-day activities of the Eagle Battalion.

Of the one million-plus dependents adversely affected by deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, nearly nine out of 10 do not qualify for federal scholarship assistance. Folds of Honor seeks to meet this need by providing annual educational scholarships to the military families of those who have been killed or disabled while in active duty. These help support private education tuition, tutoring and educational summer camps for children K-12, as well as higher education tuition assistance for spouses and children. Since its founding in 2007, the organization is proud to have awarded over 7,500 scholarships, including over 2,000 in 2014 alone. Folds of Honor is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization headquartered in Owasso, Oklahoma. For more information, please visit their web site:
