A donation goal of $450,000 has been set for the run, which raises money for The American Legion Legacy Scholarship fund. Participants in the 2009 Legacy Run set out with a goal of raising $400,000 and raised nearly $550,000 in scholarship dollars for the children of servicemembers killed on active duty on or after Sept. 11, 2001. Already, the four Legacy Runs have combined to raise well over $1 million for the Legacy fund.
