How will you get active and show appreciation this May?

May is Military Appreciation Month, and we want YOU to join us and countless patriots across the country to honor all who have laced up in service to our country – past and present – by getting active and showing appreciation. 

Why is it so important to show appreciation to our military?

Our nation’s servicemen and women have set aside their lives for the protection and preservation of our freedom – some paying the ultimate price. Our goal is to see a unification – from sea to shining sea – in support and gratitude for their service and sacrifice in May.

Here are the ways to join us


Take time either every day or throughout the month to run, walk, hike, bike or swim 31 miles in honor of our military heroes. Register HERE to set your goal for the month and challenge friends or family to get active and help reach your goal. 


Rally your neighborhood, workplace or community group to support veterans in need of care during Military Appreciation Month with a simple fundraiser. Register HERE and we’ll send you resources to help make it a success! 


Purchase a pair of combat boots and wear them throughout the month to work, social events, the grocery story, or wherever you journey to outwardly show your appreciation for those who serve.


Show appreciation on your social media channels by sharing a name, pictures or stories of a past or present servicemember you want to thank. 

Use the hashtag #MilitaryAppreciationMonth and tag @BootCampaign so we can echo your appreciation on our platforms, too.
