The second annual Imperial Joggin’ for Frogmen 5k race will be back in May.
Set for 9 a.m. on Saturday, May 30, at Campbell Park, the 2015 fundraising goal is $20,000. The 2014 race raised over $10,500.
For a limited time, race registration for the 5k is $25 for adult civilians, $20 for adult active duty military and $10 for the Tadpole Trot (children six and under).
Registration will include custom finisher’s medals for all participants, chip timing and bibs and a race t-shirt. Packet pickups will be on Friday, May 29, from 2 to 5pm at 509 Broadway Clothing Boutique.
Participants that day can enjoy 20 percent off the entire 509 Broadway clothing line and coffee when picking up their packets in store and on race day.
A virtual race registration is also available for participants who can’t make the race, but still want to support the effort. Priced at $45 (includes shipping), virtual racers will receive a shirt and medal within three weeks after the race.
Joggin’ for Frogmen is proud to partner with The 31Heroes Project, the Navy SEAL Foundation and the Travis Manion Foundation through its One Team One Fight partnership, said local race director Kelsey Owens of Imperial.
Through this partnership and mission alignment, the proceeds raised by 2015 Joggin’ for Frogmen events will be given to these charities.
All funds help sustain and grow charitable programs that provide immediate and ongoing assistance to the Naval Special Warfare community, as well as families of fallen sailors, soldiers, airmen and marines, Owens said.
The specially-designed programs include scholarships, tragedy assistance, survivor support, family services, career mentoring and community building projects.

Inspired by US Navy SEALs (Frogmen), the mission of the Joggin’ for Frogmen Race Series is to activate communities from around the world to honor the sacrifices of service members and veterans, and to support the families of fallen heroes.
Races bring communities together to celebrate the lives of America’s fallen and to express deep gratitude to those still serving.
