RFTW Midway Route Coordinator May Newsletter

Midway Route Coordinator News

Hello RFTW Brothers and Sisters,

It is May! 12 days from this morning, we will be restless with anticipation of beginning our trek as we cross our Nation. As of this morning there are 1,181 participants registered for Run For The Wall! Outstanding!


We are 1 Mission, 4 Routes! Our Run For The Wall mission for all 4 Routes is “To promote healing among ALL veterans and their families and friends, to call for an accounting of all Prisoners of War and those Missing in Action (POW/MIA), to honor the memory of those Killed in Action (KIA) from all wars, and to support our military personnel all over the world.”

In the April Newsletter, we discussed fuel payments. We are now offering new pre-paid options:

1) $10.00 per day at the first fuel stop.

2) Pre-paid fuel – At “check-in” registration you will have the option of pre-paid fuel for a one-time cost of $100.00. You will receive a wristband and sticker. This process will expedite the fueling process. Riders will not need to search for the “$10.00.”

All “extra” monies collected will support fuel and our charities and the schools we support along the Midway Route during the Run.

It was fantastic to “see” everyone at the FNG orientation meeting. We introduced members of the Midway Leadership, various factors and conditions of the Run,  Staging and Fueling procedures, & Gina “Le’ Spice” Cutrer, Staging Team Lead, revealed her new staging team flags, and we discussed the expectations of the riders while on the Run.

Midway Route Leadership continues to work on the finer details. Cookeville Outreach registration/participation is continuing to grow daily. And the Ft. Sill visit is going to be phenomenal.

This will be my last newsletter prior to Ontario KSU. I pray for safe travels for everyone on your journey to join the Run. See you soon.
