Foley Freedom Run Challenge Month

To celebrate our 10th year of the James W. Foley Freedom Run and to motivate our runners, fundraisers, donors, sponsors, and volunteers, we invite you to join us for:

Foley Freedom Run Challenge Month!

 

What is the Foley Freedom Run Challenge Month?

The Foley Freedom Run Challenge Month is a fun contest taking place the entire month of August. Each week starting Monday, August 5th, 2024, we will announce a specific weeklong challenge. The challenges will be for team captains, fundraisers, donors, and registered participants. At the end of each week, the James W. Foley Legacy Foundation will recognize an individual challenge winner. Each winner will receive a James W. Foley Freedom Run sweatshirt (Adult sizes X-Small – X- Large). Runners up will receive a copy of "American Mother", the heart-rending story of a mother who, in the course of confronting her son’s killer, gets to the elemental heart of violence and forgiveness.

 

When does the Foley Freedom Run Challenge Month Start?

Monday, August 5th, 2024. The last challenge will be announced on Monday, August 26th, 2024.

 

Who can participate?

Everyone! Some challenges are specifically for those registered for the run while others are open to the public. Watch each week to see how you can participate!

 

What are the challenges and where are they announced?

There will be a total of 4 challenges during August. Challenges will be sent in an email every Monday morning and will then take place from Monday through Saturday. All challenges end at 11:59 PM on Saturday night. Challenges will also be announced by email for registered participants and on our Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram accounts every Monday.
