Joggin’ For Frogmen Pittsburgh
Please join us on November 2, 2013, at the Pan Handle Trail just outside of Pittsburgh, PA for the Joggin’ for Frogmen 5k, benefiting the Navy SEAL Foundation and The 31Heroes Project. This 5k will be held on the morning of, and in conjunction with, the Pittsburgh Pays Tribute gala.
The Joggin’ for Frogmen mission is to bring men, women and children together to jog in honor of our SEALs (Frogmen) and Naval Special Warfare Heroes who have sacrificed their lives for us while protecting our country. We support these families by maintaining the belief that:
“One of the greatest things we can do to support our military Heroes is to give back to the foundations that support our military families”
— The Joggin’ for Frogmen team.
