The Freedom Run is held in memory of those who lost their lives in the events of September 11, 2001. We also honor our members of the United States Military and Public Safety who made the ultimate sacrifice that day, as well as those who have or are currently serving in the military or Public Safety professions.

The proceeds from this event will benefit Chesapeake Sheriff Office Charities, Inc., which offers aid to elderly and indigent victims of crime in Chesapeake. You can find more information about Charities, Inc. by visiting their website at

A portion of the proceeds will also benefit Fisher House, which provides a “home away from home” for families of patients receiving care at a major military or VA medical center. To learn more, visit

All participants will receive a shirt and finisher medal. Food and refreshments will be provided before and after the event.
