The 2021 Jordan’s Run Veterans’ Memorial 5K Run/Walk is VIRTUAL ONLY again this year. It just would not be the same event if we tried “in-person" this year, with so many restrictions still in place.
Our priority has to be making sure everyone stays healthy and safe.

In Jordan’s Honor, Ltd. awards Sag Harbor’s Pierson High School graduates who choose to serve their country by joining the Military or Law Enforcement and supports the Jordan Haerter Veterans Transitioning home in Greenville, SC.
This year, we also choose to support Fisher House, by donating a portion of the run proceeds.

Show us your run!! Send in your stats and photos! Use the hashtag #JordansRun. Maybe you can get a small group together in your area and have a fun race!

ABOUT LANCE CORPORAL JORDAN HAERTERJordan Haerter grew up in the small village of Sag Harbor, NY., and graduated from Pierson High School in 2006. He went to Parris Island for the 12-week boot camp as a recruit in September 2006 and became a proud United States Marine on Dec 1st, 2006. He was assigned in the fleet with 1stBattalion, 9thMarines and deployed to Ramadi, Iraq in March of 2008.
Jordan was killed in action on 22 April 2008, just 19 years old. He was Sag Harbor’s first battlefield loss since World War ll.
LCpl Jordan C. Haerter, alongside Cpl Jonathan T. Yale, were guarding the checkpoint and Nasser Joint Security Station. They stopped an explosive-laden suicide tank truck from entering the compound with precision firing, the explosion taking their lives, but saving the lives of 33 Marines, Iraqi Policemen, and countless Iraqi civilians. The 2 Marines posthumously earned the Navy Cross for Extraordinary Heroism, our Nations's second-highest award for valor in combat. The bridge that Jordan’s Run crosses was renamed in his honor “ Lance Cpl. Jordan Haerter Veterans’ Memorial Bridge”
