On Saturday, October 17th, 2020, over a thousand runners and walkers worldwide joined together virtually 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.

Thank you for helping 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 impacted our mission. To learn more about YOUR impact, click HERE.
