Whether you hold a candle at the vigil, wave a flag along the routes, ride your bike in memory or make a contribution of your time or money, Marine Families (formerly known as the Tampa Area Marine Parents Assoc., Inc.) is looking for help for its 8th Annual Run for the Fallen.

The two-day memorial event September 19-20 recognizes the nearly 400 “Fallen Heroes” from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and pays tribute to the Gold Star Families.

The “Fallen Floridians Tribute” is already on display through Sunday at Hillsborough Veterans Memorial Park, 3602 N. US Hwy 301, Tampa, 33619.

On Saturday runners and walkers can pick up their participation packets from 5:30-7:30 p.m., you can buy a barbecue dinner and attend the Candlelight Vigil starting at 7:45 p.m. The Bike Run and Rally gathering point is Harley Davidson Tampa, 6920 N. Dale Mabry Hwy., Tampa with the ride concluding at Veterans Park for the vigil.

Late registration for the 10K, 5K and 1 mile Memorial Walk and Run is available Sunday from 7:30-8:45 a.m. The opening ceremony starts at 9 a.m. followed by the run/walk. Additional information is available at the Marine Families website or by emailing MarineFamilies.R4F@gmail.com.
