Let Freedom Run
Celebrate our country’s independence as we run to remember the historic events and sacrifices that have helped build the foundation of our freedoms and security of this great nation.
On July 4th 1776, our founding fathers signed the declaration of Independence. Which declares, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
Each year the Independence Run focuses on one of the great men or women who help found our country’s bold and inspired heritage. This year we commemorate George Washington and his unique and indispensable role in obtaining our independence. Though he did not sign the Declaration of Independence he played a critical role in leading the fight for our freedoms. From his crossing of the Delaware river in 1776 to becoming the first President of the United States his role was crucial as one of our founding fathers.

George Washington Coin
On this year’s medal we depict our first President of the United States, George Washington. He was the man who led the Continental Army to victory in the Revolutionary War. He paved the way for what would be the standard role of the president moving forward.
The back of the coin depicts the Crossing of the Delaware River on Christmas Eve, 1776. The next day George Washington and his men executed a surprise attack and won the Battle of Trenton. Though this was small victory it led to an even bigger victory in the Revolutionary War. Through his heroic acts of courage and leadership, we became a free nation.
