DOCUMENTARY UPDATE — “To Them That’s Gone: A Film for the Fallen”

The documentary of the 2008 founding Run for the Fallen is scheduled to be completed and begin screening Memorial Day 2012. Next week, the filmmakers will be launching a 30-day campaign on Kickstarter.com to raise the funds needed to finish editing, record music, and mix and finalize the film. Our hope is that many small pledges will push the project over its finishing goal of fifteen thousand. Pledges will be recognized with special rewards, including advanced copies of the film at some levels. The RFTF community is the heart of this project, and we need your help to see this through. Please stay tuned for details on how you can make a pledge in the days and weeks to come. Thanks in advance for your support!

Please direct any questions to the filmmakers: info [at] filmforthefallen [dot] com. For videos and more info about the film, please visit www.tothemthatsgone.com.


Long Beach, CA – August 14 and 21, 2011

This year, I, Salina Jimenez (Gold Star Wife) along w/a group of Runners/Joggers & Walkers, will gather to collect mileage for our Hereos on welcoming beach run/jog/run. Our gathering will take place on the Bike/Runners path in Long Beach, CA @ 830am on Sunday the 14th and the 21st of August. We will be meeting on the beach of the bike/runner’s path under a flagged canopy near the restrooms located on Claremont & East Ocean Blvd. I will provide RFTF Runner’s Bib’s as I have in prior years. The route consists of a 2mile, 5k, 10k and 15k so all runners/walkers can casually do as many miles as they please. This is not an event consisting of timing chips and or festivities other then a few good runners/joggers meeting up to collect mileage for our Heroes. If there are any questions please email me.

I myself will be running in Honor of Mikey and my Husband, Sgt. David J. Almazan, US Army, KIA 27 Aug 2006. Some of our confirmed runners/walkers attending, are as well Gold Star Families. Both days; August 14th and the 21st, I will be out there on the path. I look forward to anyone who can join in.

*Note: For those who want to Google an address for meeting up: 5369 Ocean Blvd, Long beach is available. This address is of the Condos directly across the street from the beach where we will be meeting. (Or see the Run for the Fallen event page map). Otherwise please email if interested.
