Run for the Fallen is a 501-c3 organization that benefits charities that were created in memory of Fallen Soldiers from the State of Georgia.  The charities listed below are educational grants, scholarships, and other programs that we benefit directly.

The Foundation was formed to allow those who wished to show their appreciation for Mike's sacrifice and support for his family through donating to help kids in need have books and kids to go to college.

The Evan Andrew Marshall Memorial Scholarship Fund is a non-profit corporation that provides educational scholarships for the children of American servicemen and women who are casualties of the war in Iraq, so that these children can meet their full potential and build a better life for themselves.

Pens & Paper for Peace is a not-for-profit charitable organization dedicated to collecting pens, paper, and other school supplies in cities and towns across the United States and sending them to U.S. military personnel for distribution in Afghanistan, Iraq, and other war-torn countries where children’s education has been interrupted by armed conflict.

The mission of the fund is to promote Noah's commitment to service, people, and community so that his example will continue to inspire citizens of Georgia and America to stand up for the values which have made this country a beacon of hope, liberty, and justice.  Donations have been made to Wounded Warriors and Fisher House, and individuals and families in crisis as need is identified as well as to help deserving young people who need help to "pursue a higher purpose." Annually, the biggest contributions go to IDWIC (I Do What I Can) scholarships and achievement awards which are provided to scholar athletes and leaders in the Gilmer County area.

Ashley died a hero on September 19, 2006, when she was killed by a suicide car bomber while on patrol in her humvee.  Ashley was only six weeks away from coming home to her family and her husband Brian, whom she had married just before her deployment.  To celebrate Ashley’s life and commemorate her sacrifice for her country, the Sigma Kappa Foundation has established this scholarship.

The Captain Nicholas Schade Whitlock Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization created by Nick’s family and friends to honor his life, service, and memory by investing in the futures of individuals who display the values most important to Nick: leadership, integrity and self-less service, and giving back to communities that shaped and nurtured these values in Nick’s own life.

The Bremen High School Class of 2002 approached the school system with the idea to raise funds to purchase/construct a new scoreboard for the high school stadium. Further, the Class of 2002 wants to raise the funds in honor of their classmate Paul Saylor. On August 15, 2005, Army Sergeant Paul Saylor died while serving in Operation Iraqi Freedom. Paul was known for putting others first, and in that spirit, Paul’s classmates feel strongly that Paul would want all veterans recognized as a part of this endeavor. Hence, the name of the scoreboard will become “Paul Saylor Memorial and Veterans Scoreboard”.  Over 100 Veteran’s names we will honor with the memorial in addition to Paul. More than anything, we love that Paul’s service and sacrifice, along with other Veterans, will not go unnoticed and thousands of students who come through Bremen schools will have the opportunity to observe and learn the importance of honoring all who served for generations to come!

This organization works to support a scholarship as well as the installation of a “Fallen Heroes Memorial” in Monroe, GA.  The Memorial will stand to honor all veterans who have served in Iraq/Afghanistan war, and to honor and remember those who fell during their service to our country.  The Joseph Helton Leadership Scholarship Fund works to support college students who are in the pursuit of a military career.

Explosive Ordnance Disposal First Class (EWS/SW) Joseph Adam McSween was killed in action on the 6th day of April, 2007 in the city of Hawijak, Iraq during combat operations while supporting Operation IRAQI FREEDOM from Combat Operating Base Speicher in Kirkuk Providence.  Petty Officer McSween was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star Medal with Combat Distinguishing Device for Valor and Purple Heart.  Funds raised are used for the recruitment of students to attend Georgia Christian High School.

Nursing was a career that suited Charles’ personality perfectly. He had a knack for making people smile and relax and once he finished school in 2001 he fulfilled his dream profession.  Charles met his wife Carol in 1998 and moved a year later to Atlanta. Charles transferred his National Guard unit to Savannah, GA and started attending the University of North Georgia in 2001. As soon as Charles started the nursing program he immediately started diagnosing everyone (we all had numerous diseases according to Charles). It was clear he had found his calling and was in his element.   Shortly after Charles was informed that he would be deployed, his wife Carol found out she was pregnant with their second child. He unfortunately would never get the chance to meet his baby girl Madeline (Maddie) although he did manage to watch the video of her birth and wore a button with her picture proudly. Charles was a wonderful and loving son, brother, husband, father, friend and nurse. He touched so many people in his life and left us all with fun-filled memories.  A nursing scholarship seemed the perfect choice for an aspiring nurse. Charles loved being a nurse and we hope that by knowing a little about Charles you will feel inspired to be the best nurse that you can be.
