A Living Memorial to Those Who Sacrificed the Most

March for the Fallen (#MFTF) is a living memorial to honor the memory of all that have fallen in the defense of our nation (started by Ed Shank and Paulo Sico). The live community event is hosted by the Pennsylvania Army National Guard Training Center at Fort Indiantown Gap.
 You can always sign up here. We help coordinate and host informal March for the Fallen events in local areas. Stay up to date here.

As a reminder, March for the Fallen is a unique charity where the contribution is NOT money. The contribution at #MFTF is remembering the Fallen (and their families) when you are training/participating in the event.

Why should you attend?

  • To show gratitude for Gold Star Families and to honor the Fallen. Submit a Hero to Honor. We will march for them.

Who should attend?

  • Service-oriented citizens (Need motivation? Click here)

Is this a charity that accepts donations?

  • No. The charity is your time on the course honoring the sacrifice of Gold Star families.

How did Alpha Architect get involved?

AA is a veteran-owned organization with representation across most of the US Armed Forces (U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, and U.S. Army — we’re still waiting for our first U.S. Air Force and U.S. Coast Guard teammates!). Our organization believes in supporting those who serve. Our goal with March for the Fallen is to bring awareness to the broader finance community of the sacrifices made by Service Members (and their families) who died in the line of duty (example here). What started as a 10-person AA team-building event in 2016, turned into an ‘off the beaten path’ financial services community event. We plan to continue supporting the event every year.
