Okinawa, Japan November 6, 2020 – The USO is hosting the inaugural Trot for the Troops to express thanks and gratitude for the service men and women and families that sacrifice so much of this great nation. The USO invites the community to put your fitness efforts toward a good cause and be a Force Behind the Forces® November 21-28 to log your run, jog, bike, swim or walk. Your support helps service members stay connected to family, home and country.

USO Pacific invites everyone to join in the fun. “Thanksgiving is an opportunity for us to show gratitude to our nations’ heroes and their families. And I think this is a great way for people living overseas to connect with their loved ones back home by running and exercising together virtually,” regional vice president C.K. Hyde shared.

Trot for Troops participants will receive a t-shirt, downloadable bib, custom race medal, and a festive “holiday surprise” item! All participants are encouraged to share photos and add their race times to the leader board at the end of the race. USO Pacific will be providing a custom music playlist and warm-up video as well! Please register at Registration deadline is November 28. For more information about the event visit or contact your local USO Center. For sponsorship opportunities please contact Marissa Garcia,
