D.C. has over 2,000 homeless veterans living on the streets or temporary housing facilities. During the winter months, these veterans face extreme cold out in the elements and have no where to turn for support and a hot meal.
The Feed a Veteran 5K on Saturday, November 11, 2023 is a fun 3.1 mile road race on an enclosure golf car path of Old Hickory Golf Course in Woodbridge, VA. The race is organized with community partners to raise money and provide hot food and winter survival kits for the homeless veterans in DC and provide suicide prevention programs for veterans.
What makes this race incredibly unique is that after the race, all participants and volunteers will have the opportunity to assemble sandwiches and soup that will be delivered to these homeless veterans the afternoon after the race - Veterans Day! Additionally everyone will be able to pack winter survival kits (hygiene supples, gloves, socks, blankets, etc.) that USASOA delivers to these homeless veterans in the month of December.
