About the event
The annual Grateful Nation Montana's Freedom 5k Run/Walk on July 4th continues to be a tradition for many families and friends! The surviving children of our Fallen Montana Military Heroes who were killed in action in Iraq and Afghanistan Wars benefit from all Freedom Run proceeds. 100% of every $1.00 you give goes directly into the children's educational fund. All general and administrative costs at Grateful Nation Montana are covered by the board and most GNM Freedom Run/Walk expenses are covered by all the amazing and generous business sponsors!
The Run/Walk is open to all ages and abilities, and is a great opportunity to come together to remember and give thanks to all of our Military families before Bigfork's 4th of July parade. Families and friends gather at Lake Baked around 8 a.m. for check in and the start of the run/walk at 9 a.m. The Freedom 5k Run/Walk heads out along the beautiful and scenic Wild Mile Nature Trail. Competitive Timing is out at the start and finish line and is found right in front of Lake Baked. At the finish line everyone enjoys Cookies and medals!
If you would like to be a part of the Grateful Nation Montana Freedom 5k Run/walk and not interested in walking or running the race then we'd greatly appreciate your help to make the event a well oiled machine, we welcome you to visit the Volunteer page on the tab to the left and sign up! Thank you for your interest and we look forward to seeing you on the July 4th at 8 a.m. for race day check in!
