My Message


Greetings Run Ranger Run 2019 Sponsors,

The time has come for Teams of up to ten individuals to pledge to walk, run , row and/or ride bicycles a combined total of 565 miles in the month of February (I’m going to match my team and log 565 individual miles). Our Team (Team Vengeance) pledge to raise $5000 for the 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 Command Sergeant Major, this is certainly a worthy and appreciated service to our transitioning Veterans.

The Concept

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

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

Key Components

A team captain recruits and forms his or her team.

Team goal is to walk, run, swim,row, kayak or ride a bike (or any combination) a total of 565 miles during February. 

Teams can be one to ten people.

Teams are not limited geographically.  It can be a local group that logs mileage together or could be a team spread out across the USA or even overseas.

Teams can honor a fallen, wounded or serving Soldier, Sailor, Airman or Marine by naming their team in honor of that person, and their team website should be able to reflect that.

Teams will register and track their progress online

Teams raise money by getting family, friends and co-workers to sponsor them per mile
