On July 4th 2015 Steubenville, Ohio will be the location for the United States Coast Guard "Run to Remember" which is a worldwide movement that honors Coast Guard heroes who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service of their country. The Coast Guard Foundation is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of the men and women of the Coast Guard and their families. Founded more than 40 years ago, the Coast Guard Foundation provides education, support and relief for the brave men and women, who enforce maritime law, protect our homeland and preserve the environment.

In 2014, more than 5,400 people gathered to honor the fallen heroes of the Coast Guard at 60 different events across the globe. Since its inception, the Run To Remember has raised more than $100,000 to support the men and women of the Coast Guard and their families. Most importantly, though, these events have honored the brave individuals who gave their lives so others may live. The Coast Guard Foundation supports many programs and projects through donations from individuals, corporations, grants and fundraising events. We provide college scholarships to dependents of enlisted personnel on active duty, who are retired, or serving in the reserves. The Foundation funds recreational and family-oriented facilities, and supports education and morale programs at bases and on ships around the nation.

In times of loss, we offer financial relief to Coast Guard families who lose their possessions in natural disasters. When Coast Guard families suffer the ultimate loss, losing a loved one in the line of duty, the Foundation provides scholarship and relief funds to support the families during their most trying times. Those who are unable to run are being asked to participate by walking or biking, with relays always an option. Not limited exclusively to active and reserve forces, anyone with affiliation to the service, whether Auxiliarists, family, friends, or supporters are invited to attend a run or coordinate one for their area if it's not already planned. Everyone is strongly encouraged to attend.
