And if you canʼt make it to Colorado,
join us in spirit with a Virtual Run
In memory of Capt. William “Pyro” DuBois who died defending our country when his F16 crashed in the Middle East on 12/01/14.
All proceeds from the race go to Pyro’s Wings Scholarship which provides financial support to future fighter pilots. The donations create a longstanding legacy for Capt. DuBois and help aspiring Air Force ROTC Cadets fulfill their dreams of becoming an aviator.
Be aware that this trail run is at an elevation of 9,000+ ft., and it is a rigorous trail riddled with roots, rocks, and uneven terrain!!!!
Wear your Pyro t-shirt or order one here.
There will be a barbecue following the race and participants will receive a mug to fill with a beverage of their choice.
For more info contact Donna at firstname.lastname@example.org or 970-876-2324
Come help us celebrate a life well lived!
