About This Activity

The Fallen Hero’s 5K was a race started 10 years ago to memorialize those heroes who gave their lives for this country. Money raised will be donated to the Gainesville Fisher House and the UDT/SEAL Association.

Our goal is to support veterans and their families who need help financially. They have given their all for us, risking their lives at the cost of our freedom, running this race is the least we can do in honor of them. The Fallen Heroes 5K is in honor of two of UF’s fallen heroes, Navy SEAL James Suh, and Naval Special Warfare Officer Thomas Fouke. Both were UF alumni and died while serving their country. They gave their all for their teammates, their family and their country. 

The Gainesville Fisher House gives lodging and necessities to veterans and their families who are having medical work done at the local VA hospital. 
The Association is a non-profit veterans organization that helps veteran SEALs and their family members with financial need. 

Go Navy, Go Gators.
