Proceeds from the Boots On The Ground Color Run go to the Veteran Court Program.
“The mission of the Veterans Treatment Court is to have a coordinated community response to the problems of veterans. This mission involves the collaboration of the Veterans Administration, the local Vet Centers, Veterans support groups and the court system. The process provides the means to expedite veterans from the traditional criminal justice system and provide them the tools they need to lead a productive and law abiding life.
Veterans Treatment Court is a specialized docket that addresses former military service members who have broken the law because they suffer from combat-related stress, substance abuse, financial instability or other difficulties adjusting to life after wartime deployment.”
