FYI: The father and son team of Tom and Warren Knoll of Freedom Run will be in St. Louis tomorrow.
Freedom Run is dedicated to raising funds for the Wounded Warrior Foundation, which assists wounded veterans and their families, the Sunshine Foundation, which grants wishes to seriously ill and abused children, and the Challenged Athlete Foundation, which assists disabled athletes.
Here are the details of tomorrow’s event:
Freedom Run Reaches St. Louis, MO
The father and son team of Tom and Warren Knoll have reached the St. Louis, Missouri area in their epic journey of 3,300 miles to raise $1,000,000 for charity.
The Knolls plan to do a portion of their run in Creve Coeur, MO on Friday, May 23 at 10:00 am on the trails at Creve Coeur Park, just west of St. Louis.
The Freedom Run Across America started on March 1st in San Diego, CA and commence on July 4th, 2008 in Washington DC. The run will be a combination of 112 days of 30 mile runs each. The run is dedicated to raising funds for the Wounded Warrior Project, which assists wounded veterans and their families, the Sunshine Foundation, which grants wishes to seriously ill and abused children, and the Challenged Athlete Foundation, which assists disabled athletes.
Throughout the cross-USA run, runners, joggers, walkers, and wheelchair racers are encouraged to join in the run for whatever mileage they desire to do. Warren and Tom will do some public speaking on route to promote physical fitness among children, adults and senior citizens. A number of organizations will also be forming fund raising activities in support of the Knolls effort.
