Purple Heart Run

The Bangor American Legion is organizing their annual 3K road race to help raise funds to support our local veterans and their families. With the holiday season approaching, the needs of our veterans is more important than ever. Community support is crucial to achieve our mission.

The “For Our Vets Purple Heart Run” will be held Friday, November 11 prior to the start of the annual Bangor/Brewer Veteran’s Day Parade. The Purple Heart Run starts at 10 a.m. in Brewer and ends in Downtown Bangor. There is a recommended donation of $20 per runner.

Participants of all levels, including walkers, are encouraged to take part in this downhill course. Teams from schools, businesses and organizations are also welcome to show their support for our veterans. Free t-shirts will be given to the first 100 registered runners.

To pre-register, please contact Doug Damon, Legion Commander, by emailing cdicemom@aol.com or call or text 207-949-4735. Registration forms are also available at Realty of Maine, 458 Main Street, Bangor. Donations are also being accepted for the road race and throughout the year.
