OUR MISSION IS TO PROVIDE COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS AND EDUCATIONAL COUNSELING TO MILITARY CHILDREN WHO HAVE LOST A PARENT IN THE LINE OF DUTY.
Fallen Patriots has provided over fifteen million dollars in support. There are approximately 20,000 children who need our help.
Team Fallen Patriots is a virtual event where you can crawl, walk, run or ride in support of Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation. Do whatever type of activity you like in your local area - walk with your family, do a local fun run, crawl through the mud on a Tough Mudder or ride your Harley or road bike with your friends. Or just round up a bunch of friends to donate. Share your photos with us on social media #teamfallenpatriots.
Memorial Day is when we honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country and our freedoms. There is no better way to honor those who died for us, than to ensure the success of those they loved most - their children. Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation provides college scholarships to military children who lost a parent in the line of duty. This is our chance to serve those who gave their all for us.
This year’s run is in honor of Lt. Commander Raymond O’Hare who was a Navy pilot and was killed in 2000 in a training accident. His daughter Liz is studying Biology and Chemistry at Mount St. Mary's University and Katie is studying Communications at the College of Charleston. Both are attending school with the help of Children of Fallen Patriots. Their mother Colleen is a passionate runner and has participated in many races in support of Fallen Patriots. You can learn more about the O’Hares in the video above or by clicking the button below.
