Today marked their first ever “Around The Bases” Memorial Run. The team began running the bags at 9:11 AM, touching 412 plates. This is the number of Firefighters, Police Officers, and EMS workers who died during that event.

They invited first responders from around Cheyenne to attend as a symbol of gratitude for what they do for our nation.

They also had flags for the 13 service members lost in he Islamic Attack at the Kabul Airport.
