NASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 17, 2022) – Memories of Honor, a 501c3 nonprofit based in Nashville is gearing up for the 7th annual Honor the Fallen 5K, set for this Saturday, May 21 at The Grove in College Grove, Tennessee.
More than “just another” 5K, the HTF5K is a family-friendly, pet-friendly community event where friends of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities join in unity to show their love and support to our families of our Nation’s fallen heroes. And also to pay their respects to our military members and first responders, both past and present.
“We believe our fallen service members and their families deserve to be honored and remembered not just on Memorial Day, but every day,” said Amy Cotta, founder of Memories of Honor. “Our mission is to make every day Memorial Day by creating living, breathing memorials so no life loss as a result of serving our country goes forgotten.”
In addition to the 5K race, the food and the fun, HTF5K will also feature a very special all-veteran songwriters round with three Nashville-based up-and-coming singer-songwriters and recording artists. Country recording artist & Marine veteran Adam Warner, country singer-songwriter & Army veteran Brei Carter, and country singer-songwriter & combat Army veteran Mark Addison Chandler will join onstage post-race to share their stories in song and conversation.
