Gold Star Youth Mentorship

The wear blue Gold Star Youth Mentorship Program is a community impact program, pairing active duty military with children of fallen service members in a multi-week run mentorship program.  This program in the Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Fort Bragg, and San Antonio communities, will encompass goal setting, story telling, and physical training. The program will close with a meaningful Memorial Day run, followed by a Heroes' Hike, the following weekend, celebrating the children's honored hero, as well as their personal triumph over adversity. Memorial Day will culminate their two months of training, as the young athletes and their mentors lead the local wear blue remembrance run.
