Lisa Hallett

Class of 2018

Surviving the loss of her husband, Captain John Hallett, killed in action on  August 25, 2009, Lisa Hallett turned to running. She started wear blue: run to remember, a gold star, veteran, and military support community that spans the globe. The support community empowers families of the fallen, supports the men and women who serve, and honors our nation’s fallen heroes.

Through the support of PLS, Lisa is currently scaling a Gold Star youth mentorship program, empowering post-9/11 Gold Star children in building resilience and identity through a run-focused mentorship with currently serving members of our armed forces. Hallett is dedicated to developing healthy communities that honor the fallen, support the military, and bridge our military and civilian populations as our nation navigates its longest war.
