Premier manufacturer of flame resistant apparel, DRIFIRE raises awareness for House of Heroes by donating shirts to Run for the Heroes event.

/EINPresswire.com/ COLUMBUS, GA. – DRIFIRE, leading developer of comfortable flame resistant (FR) shirts and FR clothing, has donated its DRIFIRE Comfortable FR Wear t-shirts to the Run for the Heroes Memorial Day event. Run for the Heroes is a 260-mile run and relay across the state of Georgia from May 27 to May 31, and is open to all runners interested in supporting U.S. veterans.

The run was started in 2009 by John Teeples, a House of Heroes volunteer, as a way to raise money and awareness for the organization. House of Heroes provides free home repairs to disabled or elderly military heroes in gratitude for their service to the country.

“The DRIFIRE team is very excited to contribute to this event by donating our shirts. 260 miles is a really long distance, and our shirts will help runners stay dry, comfortable, and odor-free as they undertake this amazing feat of endurance and stamina,” said Dustin Cohn, Chief Marketing Officer for DRIFIRE. “As a company that provides garments to many people serving in various branches of our country’s military forces, DRIFIRE is honored to be working with an organization that strives to support our nation’s heroes long after they’ve stepped off the battlefield.”

The run begins at the National Infantry Museum at Fort Benning, GA., and ends in Savannah, GA. Individual runners have 120 hours to complete the run, while relay teams of up to eight runners have 40 hours. Runners can follow their own schedule, stopping and starting at any time once the run has begun, but leaving markers at exact stopping point to allow them to pick up where they left off after taking a break.

“The House of Heroes is a compassionate and committed nonprofit organization, and we are proud to be a part of this unique, charitable event,” said Cohn. “Together, we can make a difference in veterans’ lives and give them a much-deserved ‘thank you’ for all they have done for this country. All of the runners have DRIFIRE’s full support and encouragement in their Run for the Heroes.”
