8 Years of Service

Boot Memorial Hero & Remembrance Run, formerly known as the Fisher House Hero & Remembrance Run, Walk or Roll, was started in 2012 by Theresa Johnson, to honor service members, by recognizing the names and faces of all who lost their lives through combat of service to our country since September 11, 2001.


Hero and Remembrance Run, Walk or Roll Event Honors the Fallen

Last year, thousands of runners joined together to honor service members who have fallen since 9/11. Known as the Hero and Remembrance Run, this event spans eight kilometers.

While some were sleeping, thousands of others participated in the sixth annual Fisher House Hero and Remembrance Run, Walk or Roll 8-kilometer run on Ford Island aboard Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Sept. 9, 2017.

Theresa said she wanted to bring the names and faces back of all those who have died since 9/11, instead of just referring to numbers. Every boot has a story. Relatives and friends added their own personal touches to some of the boots en route.

Words cannot describe the appreciation we have for dedication and unbelievable sacrifice of the men and women who's boots lined the Ford Island bridge. We recognize and honor you... and know that We will NEVER forget!
