Come join us for fun, fellowship, and fitness as we remember our hero, CPT David Hortman. In addition to being a highly decorated and respected Army officer and pilot, Dave was a fitness fanatic with a contagious smile and a fun-filled heart. Not only will this event honor and celebrate Dave’s life, but it will also help us remember those who bravely serve our country and protect the freedoms we enjoy today.

The Annual Run to Remember: CPT David Hortman 5k Run / Walk is sponsored by Friends of Boys State, a non-profit organization supporting the Palmetto Boys State program. All proceeds will go directly to Friends of Boys State and, at Dave’s request, provide scholarships for exceptional individuals who may need financial assistance to help make their experience at Palmetto Boys State a reality.
