The Middle Point AmVets Post 698 with the help of Jessica Hardesty will be hosting a 5k run / walk on Saturday, May 25, 2013 at 9:00 a.m. in Middle Point. The proceeds of this event will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project (90%) along with the MP Amvets Post 698 (5%) and the Middle Point Ball Park Association (5%).
After taking part in many local 5k's it became a personal goal of mine to organize a 5k run/walk for a good cause. While searching for inspiration, someone who is very near to my heart came to mind, my hero! My hero just happens to be my brother, who is also a United States Veteran. He, along with many other friends and family who have bravely served and continue to serve this great country of ours have become my driving inspiration for this 5k run/walk. My heart goes out to the veterans who have been affected by PTSD, those that have been wounded and the families of those killed in action while fighting for our freedom. They have bravely put their lives on the line for us and i feel that it's time that we GIVE BACK to them! Please join us Memorial Day weekend to honor and thank our local service men and women while supporting Wounded Warrior Project along with our local branch of the AmVets and Middle Point Ball Park Association!
