This past Saturday, True Hero Ties ran the Denver Veterans Day 5K.
A team of 10 THT supporters ran the race alongside 250 veterans, current military members, politicians, and civilians. Each teammate ran the race wearing a tie.
Congressman Ed Perlmutter ran the race as well. The team finished at various times, with the first teammate arriving in 21 minutes and 45 seconds.
Matt Newill, founder of True Hero Ties, ran the race in his traditional American flag pants, which garnered even more curiousity from the crowd.
A father of an Army Ranger who was recently killed in Afghanistan was presented with an award for the recognition of his family’s sacrifice. It was a special and touching moment for all who attended.
