The Race For A Soldier - Gig Harbor Half Marathon is more than a run through the scenic Pacific Northwest. This is a race run for hope, for support and a better future for the men and women that serve our country. This is a race founded by a brave woman, who lost a brave son, who proudly served our nation. A brave son whose life was cut short, like too many of our soldiers today.
As heavy as this burden might seem, as monumental as this epidemic is, we believe we can make a difference. The Permission To Start Dreaming Foundation knows that our soldiers need our help and believes we can change the tide. Communities can make a difference in the fight to stop this epidemic and The Race For A Soldier - Gig Harbor Half Marathon is our anchor of hope, our way to show support and raise awareness and a chance to raise valuable funds that will ensure more soldiers get the help they need before it's too late.
