Why #IRunForJim

Purpose of the James W. Foley Freedom Run/Walk

  • To promote the James W. Foley Legacy Foundation, in remembrance of Jim, a committed American conflict journalist, compassionate teacher, mentor and humanitarian, who aspired to live a life of moral courage.

  • Our Foley Freedom Run goal is to inspire moral courage one person at a time, remember all who have died to keep us free, raise funds for the James W. Foley Legacy Foundation, and provide an opportunity for people to come together to protect freedom.

  • Funds raised will be used to:

  •  Advocate for the freedom of all Americans kidnapped or unjustly detained abroad through supporting their families, conducting research on current hostage issues and advocating for stronger US hostage policy.

    o Promote the safety of journalists worldwide, and freelance journalists working in dangerous areas, through safety training and education.

  • o Educate the public regarding the silent crises of hostage-taking and threats to press freedom, and students of journalism on preventative safety measures through the James W. Foley Safety curriculum and the documentary Jim: The James Foley Story.
