Louisville Joggin’ for Frogmen 5k Race

September 22 @ 8:00 am - 12:30 pm

Letter from the Race Director

Welcome to the 5th annual Louisville (formerly River City) Joggin’ For Frogmen
2018. With your help and commitment we are going to make this year’s event bigger and better. It’s been a pleasure to work with the Navy SEAL foundation that supports the families of our warriors. The blanket of freedom we enjoy is purchased by our soldiers and endured by the families left behind. I have been amazed at the commitment of the families of our great military community. I met so many people who have lost family and friends who have served our wonderful country. Even after their loss they want to help others, to serve and give back. I’m humbly honored to be the Race Director for Joggin’ for Frogmen of Louisville, KY. I want to stand behind our military and their families in appreciation for their sacrifices, to help those in need, and to serve who have unselfishly served us. Join us and our community in celebrating our unending support and commitment for these exceptional warriors and their families who make this country so great. You can make a difference in the lives of others by supporting this noble cause.

The Mission

The inaugural Joggin’ for Frogmen 5k run/walk and kids’ Tadpole Trot was held in San Diego on July 29, 2012. The race marked the one year anniversary of the Extortion 17 helicopter tragedy in Afghanistan by paying tribute to the 30 American warriors and 1 working dog lost that fateful day. Through this single race in San Diego, Joggin’ for Frogmen raised over $58,000 net contribution.

In 2016, Joggin’ for Frogmen became the Official Race Series and the Official Running Team of the Navy SEAL Foundation. Joggin’ for Frogmen is continuing to grow across the United States, as well as expanding our reach worldwide via the Running Team. To date we have raised over $700,000 net contribution. As we continue to grow and build momentum, we hope you will join us and contribute to Joggin’ for Frogmen in 2017!
