This event was created to raise awareness of the Fisher House mission and what we do to support our Military Men and Women as well as identify who we serve. As we met these military families and identify with their challenges to get back to their new "normal" we have realized so many people still don't understand. This event will help bring more awareness to our mission. As Tripler Fisher House serves the Pacific Rim we are reaching out to our "local communities" of Guam, American Samoa, Japan and Korea as well as the Service Members who are stationed here in Hawaii and those who are currently deployed. We would like to encourage you to learn more about what we do as well as stop the the Fisher House when you are in the area. Volunteers are very important in helping us maintain our mission and helping us make our house a home to these families. As a special part of our education piece of this run we will be honoring each Service Member who has died from deployment. There will be a pair of boots with a flag, the names and faces of over 6400 Services Members that will line the run route as well as the Patriot Guard who will lead off the event. After the event some of the boots will become part of a display that will be in the Pacific Aviation Museum.

The Fisher House™ Program
The Fisher House™ program is a unique private-public partnership that supports America's military in their time of need. The program recognizes the special sacrifices of our men and women in uniform and the hardships of military service by meeting a humanitarian need beyond that normally provided by the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs.
Because members of the military and their families are stationed worldwide and must often travel great distances for specialized medical care, Fisher House™ Foundation donates "comfort homes," built on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers. These homes enable family members to be close to a loved one at the most stressful times - during the hospitalization for an unexpected illness, disease, or injury.
There is at least one Fisher House™ at every major military medical center to assist families in need and to ensure that they are provided with the comforts of home in a supportive environment. Annually, the Fisher House™ program serves more than 12,000 families, and have made available nearly 3 million days of lodging to family members since the program originated in 1990. By law, there is no charge for any family to stay at a Fisher House operated by the Department of Veterans Affairs; and Fisher House Foundation uses donations to reimburse the individual Fisher Houses operated by the Army, Navy, and Air Force. No family pays to stay at any Fisher House!
Online donations are completely safe and the most efficient way of donating (saving time and money), but checks are accepted. Please write the check to "Fisher House Foundation" and mail it directly to the fundraiser. The fundraiser will send it to the Foundation with the appropriate paperwork.
The Foundation has received the highest possible ratings from the “watch dog” organizations that evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of nonprofit organizations: For every dollar donated to Fisher House™ Foundation, 96 percent goes directly into the Fisher House program.
Fisher House™ Foundation, Inc., is a not-for-profit organization under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code. Donations are tax-deductible to the maximum extent allowed by law.
