Running 4 Vets mission is to support disabled American Veterans and Veteran Non-Profit Organizations through social running events and various fundraisers.
The Salute Our Heroes 5K and Veterans Day Weekend Celebration are meant to bring awareness and support for our local veteran organizations. This year's 5K will be held Veterans Day Weekend on the Marine Corps Birthday November 10, 2018. at 8:00 a.m.
Proceeds of this 5K will benefit the following Veteran Non-Profit organizations:
The 22 Project
The 22 Project supports underserved war veterans who have traumatic brain injuries and are at risk for depression and/or suicide. In collaboration with physicians, therapists, and health care workers, The 22 Project provides advanced medical treatments to reduce a veteran’s risk of depression and/or suicide, including care and evaluation by highly trained board certified physicians, hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), and essential brain supplements and superfoods, all at no cost to the veteran.
Operation Aquatic Freedom
With over 22 Veteran suicides a day and countless cases related to PTSD, anxiety, depression, and inability to reacclimate to civilian life, we owe our great nation’s heroes the help they so deservingly desire. We use recreation to combat these statistics, create change, and promote a healthy quality of life for our brave servicemen and women.
Patriot Placements is committed to serving the military community by working with the business community to promote job placement and economic independence to our nation’s heroes and their spouses.
The First Tee Broward (Childrens Golf Foundation)
The First Tee of Broward partners with United Way of Broward County's MISSION United to deliver free golf programs to local Broward veterans. Our program not only provides expert golf instruction delivered by PGA professionals, it also provides an atmosphere for fellowship, bonding and healing among our local veterans. We have provided our programs to over 200 Broward veterans since beginning in 2016.
