The 2nd Annual Great American Relay Will Start on 9/11/2021 at 8:46 am!

The Great American Relay is a real relay across the United States! We are running from Boston to Los Angeles and need runners to get the baton through your state!

We start on 9/11 at 8:46 am to commemorate the 20 year anniversary of the events of that day. We will be raising money for first responders and our military who continue make the sacrifices necessary to keep us safe every day.

Registration opens May 1 so put a reminder on your calendar so you don't miss out.

We are raising money for the police, firefighters and military

Green Beret Foundation

The Green Beret Foundation (GBF) provides Special Forces Soldiers and their families with emergency, immediate, and ongoing support. Since its inception in 2009, GBF has invested 87%, or 87 cents of every dollar, into its programs and services, which has totaled to over $15 million that has directly supported the Regiment and its families. GBF is the only non-profit solely dedicated to supporting Green Berets and their families that has achieved a 4-Star Rating with Charity Navigator. Also, GBF is the sole special operations benevolent organization that is accredited by the Department of Veterans Affairs for the purpose of preparation, presentation, and prosecution of disability claims. 


Firefighter 5 Foundation

The Firefighter Five Foundation is a veteran founded foundation focusing on our first responders well being.

Steve Bender founded the foundation in 2013 to help fill the gap in assistance to our Homefront heroes, the first responders. Steve is a Persian Gulf, Air Force veteran as well as a 29 year volunteer firefighter and has always had a passion for helping others.



Each year, between 140 and 160 officers are killed in the line of duty and their families and co-workers are left to cope with the tragic loss. C.O.P.S. provides resources to help them rebuild their shattered lives.
