Become a Flag Runner
Flag Runners: The teams of two who place flags and take a photo to provide a virtual connection between the Requestor and their hero.
Flag Runners will register and be shuttled to the cemetery before all other volunteers. They will be assigned to work in two-person teams, one required to carry a smartphone with a quality working camera and internet service. A photo will be taken and uploaded via an online form to share on FFFS social media for the Requestor to see. Additional instructions for this will be given the day of the event.
There are specific instructions for how to place a flag on a headstone, which will be given on Saturday evening. We ask that you take great care with every flag that is placed, and that you pay close attention when these instructions are given.
Please note: The cemetery does not want anyone showing up in running gear, though tennis shoes are acceptable. They ask that we keep to a brisk walk, as running is not allowed in the cemetery.
