Memorial Day 2022
A memorial run to raise awareness for our Special Operations members who were killed in action since 9/11/2001. Only one rule to run with Project 33; the flag represents the fallen, and no runner will pass the flag. The flag will lead the way.
While our traditional run is 6.8 miles, we encourage you to run the distance you feel most comfortable with. This could look like running in your driveway, around your yard, or your own road course. Post pictures after your run and tag us on social media (Facebook: Project 33 Memorial Foundation; Instagram: @project33memorialfoundation) and include the hashtag #RUNFORANDY
We were truly blown away by the participation of our in-person and virtual supporters last year! Our virtual runs took place at military bases as far north as Fort Drum, NY and as far south as Fort Rucker, AL. The impact that this had on the Conneway family was immense, we thank you for that.
If you are local to Buffalo, we would love to see you at our in-person event. Virtual registration is available for out-of-town participants or for those who will complete a distance at their own discretion. This Memorial Day join us and honor U.S. Army Special Forces Officer Major Andrew D. Byers. We cannot wait to see all your posts as we run for Andy and keep his legacy alive.
Funds raised during our 2022 campaign will be donated to Folds of Honor at the request of the Byers family. Folds of Honor is a nonprofit organization that helps provide the families of the fallen and disabled service members educational scholarships.
