Veterans Awareness is a cause that spreads awareness and support for the contributions and sacrifices of our veterans. Proceeds from our Veterans Awareness virtual race will be donated to one of the following organizations: The Fisher House Foundation.
The Fisher House Foundation
They are a unique private-public partnership that supports America’s military in their time of need. The program recognizes the special sacrifices of our men and women in uniform and the hardships of military service by meeting a humanitarian need beyond that normally provided by the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs.
There is at least one Fisher House at every major military medical center to assist families in need and to ensure that they are provided with the comforts of home in a supportive environment. Annually, the Fisher House program serves more than 10,000 families, and have made available nearly 2.5 million days of lodging to family members since the program originated in 1990.
