HODGE is excited to sponsor Military Appreciation Month for the Dubuque Fighting Saints on behalf of Run4Troops during November. Together, Run4Troops, HODGE, and the Dubuque Fighting Saints will honor our active military members and veterans while raising funds to support various local veterans’ programs in the Dubuque community.
“HODGE has deep respect and appreciation for our men and women in uniform, both past and present, and their families,” said Mike Hodge, president of HODGE. “As a company, we started Run4Troops to generate awareness for our local military, and together with the Fighting Saints – we hope we can continue to honor our service members through this partnership.”
You can join in on the fun and show your support during Military Appreciation Month by purchasing 50/50 raffle tickets or commemorative merchandise during any of the Dubuque Fighting Saints home games in November.
Military Appreciation Month will wrap up with the Dubuque Fighting Saints home game on November 16 where we’ll be auctioning off the special, one-of-a-kind jerseys worn by the Fighting Saints team. You won’t want to miss it. All proceeds from the auction will be donated to the Veteran's Freedom Center.

Created by and organized by HODGE in 2009, Run4Troops has quickly become one the area’s premier community events and nationally recognized races. What started out as a grassroots effort to bring awareness to the men and women in uniform, has grown into an event that now attracts over 1,500+ participants every year from across the country.
Over the course of the last 11 years, Run4Troops has raised over $150,000 with proceeds beneﬁting Tri-State military members – past, present, and future. To learn more, visit Run4Troops.com.
