US Navy

As part of its virtual event series, the NEX along with MWR Navy Fitness and MWR Navy Entertainment, will be hosting Founded on Freedom during the July 4th holidays. During the weekend, patrons can participate in the Run for Freedom virtual 5k race July 1 – 4. In addition to the 5k race, patrons can also tune in to listen to the free Jams for Freedom virtual concert series beginning July 1. All the concerts will be shown on Facebook.com/NavyExchange.

“During the COVID-19 pandemic, we had to change the way we brought events to our patrons,” said Bill Marx, Marketing Promotion Coordinator at the Navy Exchange Service Command (NEXCOM). “However, we quickly realized that these virtual events are a great way to connect with our patrons who are located all around the world. So, even as restrictions are lifted and we begin hosting more in-store events, we will continue with these virtual events as well.”

Participants in the Run for Freedom 5k run at their own pace to the virtual finish line, accompanied by live musical performances and entertainment. Registration is now open through July 4 at myNavyExchange.com/NEXtLevel5K. The first 1,500 to register for the virtual 5k will receive a free commemorative medal, while supplies last. In addition, a limited edition challenge coin will also be given to participants of all five races, while supplies last.
