Story


The Hero Loan team is hiking 26.2 miles to honor those service members involved in the Bataan Death March. Each year the Bataan Memorial Death March invites participants to hike in blistering high-desert sun of the White Sands Missile Range for this event. We invite you to join us virtually to raise money for Fisher House Foundation100% of donations will support this great cause!

We are pushing our bodies with one goal - to help our military. With 35 pounds on our backs, our team will complete the 26.2 miles to spread awareness of the sacrifices made in Bataan, and to fundraise for a great organization dedicated to serving our military, Fisher House Foundation. 

Too extreme? No problem, try out the 14 mile honorary option instead - weight optional.
