IT IS ABOUT FINISHING THE RACE, NOT RACING TO THE FINISH!
The Freedom for Fighters 5K Walk/Run Event is presented to Mountain Home, Idaho in honor of all who are crushed in spirit; specifically, those who carry the hidden wounds of PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) and Depression. This event is brought to you by the Jason Barney Family and the City of Mountain Home.
Freedom for Fighters Walk/Run is unique in that all participants will have the option to fill a back pack at the start of the race with donated canned goods representing the heavy weights that those who are 'crushed in spirit' and/or wear the hidden scars of PTSD carry on a daily basis. We ask that each participant bring their own new back pack and canned goods with messages of inspiration on them. During the race there will be certain checkpoints where participants will unload a portion of weight, one checkpoint at a time. The idea is for the participants to be completely removed of all weights at least a quarter of a mile from the finish line so that the participants may run or sprint the last leg of the race free from weight. All participants will be celebrated as they cross the finish line because this walk/run represents FINISHING the race, not racing to the finish!
