We Run – They Fly is back!

Nonprofit Details

The We Run – They Fly run/walk is an event which benefits the Stars and Stripes Honor Flight of Southeastern Wisconsin. The 6th annual event will take place in person on Sunday July 25th 2021 and virtually throughout the summer.

As a 501(c)3 nonprofit, our donations to the Stars and Stripes Honor Flight have totaled over $83,000! With your participation in our event you will be helping the Stars and Stripes Honor Flight to continue to fly our WWII, Korean and Vietnam War Veterans on a one day, all expenses paid trip to Washington DC, to visit their memorials and experience a full day of honor and thanks. Most of our oldest heroes have never been thanked for their service to our nation many years ago, and they often say, that aside from their wedding day, their honor flight day is the best day of their lives.

Registration Details

We have both in person and virtual race options available. We are monitoring the Covid-19 pandemic closely, and are very hopeful we will be able to see you all in person on Sunday July 25th. In the event an in person run/walk cannot take place, we will again give participants the option to run/walk virtually, defer registration to next year, or simply donate the registration fees to our nonprofit. We will continue to update this page throughout the next few months.

T-SHIRTS: T-shirts are unisex sizes. We cannot guarantee a race t-shirt for registrations after July 1st. We will do our best to accommodate for those registering after that date.
VETERANS: As a thank you, your race entry is free! Please be prepared to show military ID if requested.
