Colleen Moore's 10K Run

Fundraiser for the Coalition of Families of Korea & Cold War POW-MIAs

I'm raising funds to support accounting and recovery of American service members who remain missing in action from the Korean and Cold Wars because I truly believe in their mission. I first became interested in the security crisis and unresolved conflict on the Korean peninsula in 2018 when I met the Women Cross DMZ team in Washington, DC, and subsequently traveled to the demilitarized zone in 2019, on the first anniversary of the inter-Korean Panmunjom Declaration on April 27. I saw firsthand the effects of the division of the Korean people and the trauma of the unended Korean War. This mutual distrust between North Korea and the United States hurts progress on recovery missions of missing U.S. service members, reunions of divided families, delivery of humanitarian aid, and so many other issues. The U.S. working with North Korea to recover and identify remains of service members is one concrete way to transform U.S.-North Korea relations — and conversely, working for peace with North Korea will help this mission to recover remains.

As someone who lost her father at the young age of 2, I cannot imagine not having closure on losing a parent. As Rick Downes, the President of the Coalition, says in his memorial to his father who is still missing in action from the Korean War, "It’s a story all too familiar to families of missing servicemen. Those of us who have lived a lifetime not knowing what happened to a loved one understand the anguish." I'm running this 10K to honor Hal Downes and all of the missing service members.


The Coalition of Families of Korean and Cold War POW/MIAs represents still-missing American military personnel and their families. The Coalition has negotiated with the DPRK on U.S. remains return, accompanied former VP Pence to honor the return of remains by North Korea, and has joined with Congressional offices to introduce declassification legislation and increase DNA laboratory funding. The Korean and Cold War accounting missions have focused on U.S. servicemembers' remains recovery and identification, air losses over North Korea, last seen alive reports/P.O.W. transfers, Cold War losses/deep water sites, and declassification. The Coalition calls upon the governments involved to pursue these issues until the missing men are accounted for in the present frame of time, not a point to come in an unending future. The Coalition is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
