Emerald Coast Honor Games
On November, 11th, 2017, (Veteran’s Day) the community, competitors, vendors, special guests, and Defenders of the Front Line, will come together for a special day.
Emerald Coast Honor Games celebrates our heroes with a day of competition, honor, community, fun, food, and world class views. Home to the “World’s largest U.S.A. flag,” this celebration will be both historic and unique. Situated at the south end of the Mid Bay bridge, Legendary Marine, Legendary Yacht Club, Legendary Marina, Lulu’s restaurant, Destin Middle School, and Destin Commons all converge to create a one of kind, world class venue! Registration is open! Read more and register at emeraldcoasthonorgames.com.
The first annual “Ruck 22” event kicks things off the day and is open to the entire community (all ages, but spaces are limited). Across our great land, the statistics sadly show that approximately 22 Veterans commit suicide EVERY DAY. To honor these heroes, we want to provide the community with a unique opportunity to engage, interact, and join area soldiers in an honorary ruck march with 22 full laps around Destin Middle School’s track. Bring your entire family and do something special to let our Veterans know that you stand in support of their sacrifice. Start time is 5:30am.
Following Ruck 22 an opening ceremony, complete with the National Anthem, raising of the Colors, invocation, special guest speakers, and a moment of silence, will kick off the competition. Hundreds of competitors will then embark on a day of strength, conditioning, and grind during 4 major fitness competition events. Family, friends, and spectators are encourage to come out and watch this amazing spectacle. With popular vendors, HUGE raffle and silent auction items, special VIPs, local heroes, music, food, kids area, and other patriotic ways to engage, the Emerald Coast Honor Games is sure to provide everyone an opportunity to show our pride and honor!
The existence of the Emerald Coast Honor Games is simple…to “Raise funds to support DEFENDERS of the Front Line.”
Emerald Coast Honor Games is an annual community based competition to benefit Okaloosa Sheriff's Star Charities, Healing Paws for Warriors, Special Forces Association, and the Combat Control Association. For more information please visit www.emeraldcoasthonorgames
