Dozens of veterans and their families participate in the 5K to connect with one another, promote Impact a Hero and its mission, as well as received their much-deserved support from those they serve – our community. The funds raised during this event will provide funding for the resources for the Impact a Hero programs and financial aid given to our heroes.

“The event gives our community the opportunity to engage with our veterans and thank them for their service,” says Laurel Goodroe, Impact a Hero’s Director of Marketing & Communications. “It’s an emotional time for everyone, but the contributions we fundraise and the connections we make are worth it.”
