While coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies each December on National Wreaths Across America Day is a big part of what we do, our mission to Remember, Honor and Teach is carried out throughout the year. From our Remembrance Tree program to the Wreaths Across America Museum in Maine, there are many different ways in which you can get involved!
In 2021, Wreaths Across America is renewing the Stem to Stone Remembrance Run! Join us in Columbia Falls, Maine where the mission of Wreaths Across America will be on display through the 5K Run/Walk/Ruck and 10K Run. Each individual race registration sponsors a fresh balsam veteran’s wreath that will be placed on the headstone of an American hero on December 18, 2021, as part of National Wreaths Across America Day. During check out, registrants can designate the Sponsorship Group or participating Wreaths Across America Location they want their sponsored wreath allocated to. Registrants will receive personalized racing bibs and commemorative finisher medallions, with event t-shirts being provided to the first 150 people to register. Additionally, Virtual Participants can submit their results through text or email and show up in official results!
This unique event will be run, walked, or rucked entirely on the Worcester Wreath Company Tip Land, closed to traffic. This beautiful area is home to the fertile soil, clean DownEast air, and majestic Balsam Fir trees that grow the tips Wreaths Across America uses to make the veterans’ wreaths that adorn the final resting places of our Nation’s Fallen in December.
Whether you join us in Columbia Falls, Maine or across our Nation and around the World, join us for the Wreaths Across America Stem to Stone Remembrance Run!
