The James W. Foley Legacy Foundation invites you to virtually join thousands of runners and walkers worldwide on Saturday, October 17th, 2020, to run in remembrance of James W. Foley, a native of New Hampshire, and all Americans who have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedoms.



This year to keep our runners, spectators, sponsors and supporters safe during the Covid-19 pandemic, the 2020 James W. Foley Freedom Run will occur virtually from a location of your choice!  Click HERE to view our Virtual Team Captain Toolkit. 

Your help is needed to advocate for the freedom of all Americans held hostage abroad and promote the safety of journalists worldwide and support the critical funding needs of the James W. Foley Legacy Foundation. By participating in the 6th annual Freedom Run, you directly impact our mission.

Run in your neighborhood, on a local hiking trail, in your backyard, on city streets - the options are endless!


If you are a local of Rochester, NH or a nearby resident and would like to collect your official Foley Freedom Run shirt locally, please register for the NH Run. We will be hosting a T-Shirt pick up day in September. Otherwise, choose the virtual option to receive your shirt in the mail.

Registration via Facebook LIVE starts at 9:30 AM EST on Saturday, October 17th 

Register as a "Fundraiser" and Tell Your story! Your supporters will want to know about you, your team and why you’re fundraising for this cause.

When creating your own team, upload pictures, tell your story, and share with friends, family and coworkers!
