Whether you are an accomplished runner or this is your first run of this kind, you are in for an incredible experience for a GREAT cause!

NW Military in the Outdoors Expo 2014: Saturday,
August 9th, 10 AM - 3 PM

The Northwest offers a wide range of work and recreation opportunities for service members, veterans and their families. Learn more about what fuels your passion and find ways to engage and stay active at the Military in the Outdoors Expo.

Is running a half marathon or walking 2 miles not your cup of tea?

You can still get involved! Sign up to be a volunteer, as many hands make light work.

For it's second year in a row, the Kyle Marshall Farr Courage Award given to the 602nd Support Brigade ("Blacksmiths")!

Sgt Michael Hendricks accepted it on behalf of his brigade (shown here with Leslie Mayne, founder of the Permission To Start Dreaming Foundation).

Speachless over Old Town Rhythm & Blues Festival donation!

The Old Town Rhythm & Blues Festival organizers chose to donate THOUSANDS of dollars to the Permission To Start Dreaming Foundation! They could have given the gift to any organization, but chose us this year.

Runners

Run for a Cause

Since our first event in 2011, thousands of runners have run for a cause in beautiful Gig Harbor. If you're ready for the long haul (the half marathon) or prefer a slightly shorter haul (the two mile walk/run), this is an amazing event to be a part of.
