The Fireflies are about more than personal health and fitness. We want to live better, fuller, stronger, happier lives as well. It is about working on our mindsets and our midsections.
With that in mind, we are excited to host the 1st Annual Virtual Firefly 5k For A Cause on May 22nd!
Run, Walk, Run/Walk, Jog, Hike....whatever floats your boat. Pick your favorite route or a new one you have never done before and join us for this virtual 5k. You will have from May 22nd - May 30th to complete your race at your pace and receive a beautiful one-of-a-kind finishers medal.
We will be donating our proceeds to Mission 22. Mission 22 supports the veteran community with three main programs; veteran treatment programs, memorials and community social impact. Mission 22 provides treatment programs to veterans for Post-Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury and other issues they might be facing. It organizes events and builds memorials to create social impact and awareness for these issues. Mission 22 serves combat veterans, those injured in training who therefore could not deploy and victims of MST.

Note: We ended up having to switch from our original charity, the Til Valhalla Project, as they do not accept cash donations. However, should you still like to support them, please head out to their website and check out their amazing merchandise! https://tilvalhallaproject.com/
