THE BIRTH OF A MOVEMENT
New Name, Same Amazing Mission
Honor. Heal. Connect.
Memories of Honor founder, Amy Cotta began running in combat boots in 2011 after her then 18-year-old son left for Marine Corps boot camp. After competing in endurance events wearing boots Amy discovered it could be a way to honor our fallen military and showing their families they are not alone.
Act as a living, breathing memorial so that no loss of military life goes forgotten. Together we can turn every day into Memorial Day. #EveryDayIsMemorialDay
Different Name - Same Great Mission
Formerly known as Medals of Honor; which was initially named for the symbolic act of sacrificing one’s endurance/sports participation medal in honor & memory of a fallen service member. Memories of Honor fully encompasses our evolving mission to create a living, breathing memorial through sports and special events so that no sacrifice goes forgotten.
