Run Ranger Run VII

Teams of up to ten individuals pledge to walk, run , row and/or ride bicycles a combined total of 565 miles in the month of February.  Each team will raise funds for GallantFew and increase awareness for stated veteran transition issues.

The GallantFew objective is to connect every transitioning veteran with a veteran mentor – one who has successfully transitioned, is local, and from the same branch of the service with a very similar military background.  We want this to happen as close to transition from active duty as possible for the greatest preventive effect, but we also spend a lot of time helping veterans through issues that have arisen over years of less-than successful transition.   The work of GallantFew does make a difference and  your miles will change lives!  

Take it from US Army 75th Ranger Regiment retired Master Sergeant, "Thanks again for all of your time and mentorship to this process. It's not easy but you have definitely helped in more ways than I can express." 



In 2012, 3rd Ranger Battalion veteran US Army Corporal Cory Smith, having deployed to combat twice, experienced having friends killed and wounded and with his own marriage failing decided to highlight the difficult journey home many soldiers have leaving the Army by undergoing a very public and very difficult journey home himself.  Cory decided to run 565 miles in 28 days with holding his daughter Elleigh in his arms the end goal of his run.


As a Result

To honor Cory’s incredible effort and to continue the momentum to raise awareness for veterans issues – particularly around divorce, unemployment, homelessness and suicide – GallantFew offers an annual Run Ranger Run event.

“I also want you to know how much of an impact this event had on my life."

"Thank you for all of your help and for this wonderful event. I can't tell you how much this has brought my husband (a combat veteran) out of his shell for a while. Its been great!"


The Event
