Join us for this 5K Walk/Run event that supports LIFT FOR THE 22.
All funds raised will go to Lift for the 22. They are a non-profit that provides gym memberships and personal training to veterans across the country. Lift for the 22 partners with fitness facilities around the nation who donate gym memberships to the program, allowing the organization to serve large quantities of the veterans community. Their mission is to increase the health and transitional success of the veteran community believing that this will ultimately make an impact on the reduction of veteran suicide. http://www.liftforthe22.net/
