D-DAY Walk to Remember the Fallen and Honor our WWII Veterans 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
Although there will be no commemoration for the 76th Anniversary of D-Day this June in Normandy, the Best Defense Foundation’s commitment to honoring our WWII Veterans remains as strong as ever. We will always remember and never forget the sacrifices and valor exhibited by our armed forces on June 6, 1944.
In partnership with Events.com we are hosting a virtual D-DAY walk on June 6, 2020 to remember the fallen and honor the heroes that changed the course of history. We would like to invite you, your family, and friends to join us as we walk or run 5K to pay tribute to The 76th Anniversary of the Invasion of Normandy.
5K is the distance from Omaha Beach to Pointe Du Hoc.
5K is the suggested distance, feel free to walk or run any distance you feel comfortable. You will be in solidarity with all of us around the world to remember the day that changed history. Please choose some time on June 6th to get it done like the heroes did on June 6th.
