Run for Warriors 5k | DFW Races

Run for Warriors 5k

Description

The Run for Warriors 5k is an annual event created to honor our nation's veterans by supporting the Wounded Warriors Project. In its inaugural event last year, 100% of all registration fees were donated to the WWP. All net registration fees will again be donated following this year's event. The Run for Warriors 5k is ideal for anyone who wants to help veterans regardless of whether being a competitive runner, a jogger or a walker....everyone will enjoy the scenic and relatively flat race route at Katherine Rose Memorial Park. 

By joining us on Sunday, 11/10/19, you are contributing to life-changing programs customized to each warrior's specific recovery needs. The Wounded Warrior Project helps these brave warriors thrive in life back home. We're helping our brothers and sisters living with traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, and physical injuries get the specific help they need -- when they need it most. Warriors never pay a penny for WWP programs -- because they paid their dues on the battlefield. With our help, the free WWP services in mental health, career counseling, and long-term rehabilitative care changes lives.
