The funds from this event go 100% to Veterans who are suffering
We are coming together to host a 5k Team Challenge Race to raise money for our local wounded veterans.
The men and women of our military are trained to be courageous protectors overseas, but some of them return home and struggle with adjusting to civilian life. Too many of our injured veterans turn to alcohol and drug addiction as a coping mechanism, and in worst case scenarios, turn to suicide. Even with assistance, some cases of PTSD can be difficult to treat and affects these brave veterans and their families.
Several local businesses are coming together to sponsor a 5k Team Challenge Race on November 9, 2013, in honor of Veteran’s Day weekend. All proceeds from this race will go to Heroes to Heroes, an organization that helps heal our local veterans who are suffering from high-level PTSD.
The three goals of this fundraiser are:
1. Raise support to help MI veterans suffering from PTSD through Heroes to Heroes (www.heroestoheroes.com) and other local non-profits.
2. To strengthen bridges between our local soldiers, their families, and their supportive civilian community through honor, respect and interaction.
3. To clarify what it means to be an ethical protector, from serviceman to civilian in our local and global community.
We need your support to:
1) Run in the Race
2) Volunteer for the Race
3) Donate what you can to support
Jennifer Franson is race director, Cathy Z. (owner of Westside Gym) is the race co-director and I (Craig Gray) designed the race route and the challenges myself, so if you decide to run the race I am confident that you will be both challenged and have fun while you are supporting our Vets that need our help.
