New Directions for Veterans, a nonprofit agency that assists homeless veterans, would like you to join us in walking or running in honor of those who have served and those who are currently serving in the Armed Forces to benefit a great cause - helping veterans get their lives back! There are more than 4,800 veterans currently living on the streets of Los Angeles and veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan are turning up homeless faster than veterans of other conflicts.

NDVets is proud to present the 9th Annual NDVets 5K Run/Walk. New Directions for Veterans (NDVets) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to empower formerly homeless men and women who served in the military, and their families, to lead productive and fulfilling lives. Join NDVets and honor our nation’s heroes at the NDVets 5k Run/Walk on Saturday, May 18th 2019. This is a family friendly 5K that offers a safe course throughout the West LA VA campus for both runners and walkers at all levels. Since 1992, NDVets has provided thousands of veterans in Los Angeles County with comprehensive services, including permanent and transitional housing, job training and assistance, substance abuse treatment, and parenting and money management classes. More than 1,800 veterans seek assistance from the organization each year. Through your participation in this 5K Run/Walk you will help raise much needed funding to continue to offer the life-saving services for veterans who need the support of their communities when they return home.
