Event Description



Please join us for the 4th Annual Veterans 5Krun/walk and Kids Dash. This event adds a little challenge of a trail run, with a smooth paved route to finish. All proceeds from The Veterans Family Trail Run will go directly to (SOVAH) Serving Our Veterans at Home. SOVAH is a non-profit Veterans organization that was created in 2008 for Veterans, by Veterans to help, and support those with barriers that are not consistent with civilian life. SOVAH knows our Soldiers have endured physical, and mental challenges in some of the harshest environments. Those who make it home have scars, and some of which we cannot see.

SOVAH is continuing the partnership with Team RWB, a local Veterans organization that strives on improving Veterans lives through social and physically activities. Help SOVAH and Team RWB breaks those barriers, and improve their standard of living. Please visit: SOVAH at Team RWB at
