July 4 @ 8:00 am - 10:30 am
Let’s gather together on the morning of 4th of July at Brookside Yard Cafe in Bigfork, MT to honor and give thanks to all the men and woman in uniform who protect our country to ensure the freedoms we enjoy today! The GNM Freedom 5K Run/Walk heads out from Brookside Yard and towards the scenic Bigfork Nature Trail and back to Brookside for the famous Brookes cookies, medals and fellowship before the 4th of July parade. A huge thank you to all our Freedom Run Sponsors. 100 % of all proceeds from race registrations go to the Grateful Nation Montana’s children fund. These children are from our Montana Fallen soldiers who paid the ultimate sacrifice while fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan wars. The Grateful Nation Montana’s children fund is for all post high school education in Montana. Grateful Nation Montana has partnered with two other wonderful organizations who help our veterans families. Children of Fallen Patriots organization covers the cost difference from Montana schools and the out of state school if the child wishes to go out of state for further education. Folded Flag Foundation organization covers expenses for the child’s education from Kindergarten thru 12th grade as well as the surviving spouse’s continuing education.
