Subject: Upcoming 6th Annual Run for the Fallen & Candlelight Memorial Vigil/Sept. 7 & 8
T.A.M.P.A. members are dedicated and continue to keep our promise to our Gold Star Families, that their loved ones will NEVER be forgotten, throughout the year but specifically during this annual event.
Last year over 3,000 participated, attended or volunteered during the two days.
Over 30 Gold Star Families were present.
Being held at the beautiful and recently renovated Hillsborough County Veterans Park there is something for everyone. Florida Fallen Memorial, 10K/5K/1mile Run/Walks, Motorcycle Procession, Candlelight Memorial Vigil, Volunteer opportunities, Cookout Dinner and commemorative shirts. Come join us and show your support.
Our main objective is to educate the community of the daily sacrifices that are being made by our military men & women. Offering this event free allows everyone to participate, especially families, without being burdened with who can and cannot afford to attend. All ages are able to see the memorial, attend the vigil, hear the stories and take home a better understanding of what is being done to preserve their freedoms.
We depend on the generous donations of members, supporters and patriots from near and far to make this possible. No donation is too great or too small to help and is greatly needed and appreciated, but not mandatory.
Donations for this event are used first directly to cover event expenses, funding for the upkeep of the Florida Fallen Memorial and contribution help with the Completion on the Veterans Iraq Memorial located at the park. This is not a fundraiser for the T.A.M.P.A. organization.
We encourage you to attend this event. You won't be disappointed and will learn more about just who we are and what our organization believes in and stands for.
Attached are fliers which can be printed and shared with contacts, on your FB, website and everyone who may be interested.
