Wounded Warrior Project

first_imgParticipating in our Democracy is more than about just voting nationally and locally on Tuesday, although that is a very good start. Take your patriotism to the next level by participating in a race that benefits our wounded troops. Soldiers coming home from war with physical and mental scars need all the help we can give them, and supporting races like the Wounded Warrior Project 8-K goes a long way. Not only do these events raise funds to bring wounded veterans back into society, but they boost morale across the board.Despite the current climatic unstableness in the Atlantic, fall is the perfect season for running. The cool climate, dry air, and gorgeous scenery make getting out on the road or trail that much more enjoyable. When you are also helping a great cause, running through the pain never hurt so good. The Wounded Warrior Project is one of the largest veterans support networks, and this weekend they are staging their 8K run in Franklin, Tenn. Race day registration is open, so feel free to sign up for the 8K or 1K fun run. If you don’t want to run, but are in the area, get out to the finish line and support runners and Wounded Warriors alike.View Larger Maplast_img read more
