We are so excited to announce our National Charity Partner for 2014 is Operation Gratitude. Operation Gratitude annually sends 100,000+ care packages filled with snacks, entertainment, hygiene and hand-made items, plus personal letters of support, to Veterans, New Recruits, First Responders, Wounded Warriors, Care Givers and to individually named U.S. Service Members deployed overseas. Since its inception in 2003, Operation Gratitude volunteers have shipped more than 1.1 Million Care Packages. Operation Gratitude will be onsite at each of our races to give their amazing care packages to all veterans and active duty military in attendance as a way of saying thank you for their service.
Every day until race day we will be giving away 1 free entry each day to the National Veterans Day Run.
