Participants are invited to engage in a 1-mile “fun run” or 4-mile virtual run or walk, where all proceeds go directly to helping veterans and veteran-related organizations in Colorado. The family-friendly event encourages racers to showcase their best patriotic outfits in a virtual costume contest by tagging photos on social media with @Freedom4MilerVirtual or @ColoradoVeteransProject and using the hashtag #Freedom4MilerVirtual. Participants who share patriotic attire on social media may win a cash prize. A special award will be granted to the “Best Dressed Pup.”
In its fourth year, and for the second time as a virtual event, the annual Freedom 4-Miler Run raises funds for local veterans in need.
