A Combat Veteran’s Hope (ACVH) had a great turnout for it's inaugural Operation HOPE 8k on Saturday November 9th, 2019 at Cutler Park in Visalia. Money raised from the event will go to continue the ACVH mission of “empowering Combat Veterans through engagement with each other and their local community.”
We have had such positive feedback from so many participants and volunteers - we are trilled beyond words.
Due to the responses we have heard, many were unable to participate the day of. Because of this, we would like to extend our Virtual Run out to the end of the month! While supplies last, you may now sign up and still receive some awesome race day swag and help our local Combat Veterans!
ACVH is a Visalia-based federally recognized 501(c)3 non-profit that began in 2015, as there was an unmet need in the Central Valley to serve all our Combat Veterans of every generation. We hold events every month that bring together our cliental throughout Central California. These events and programs range from our Warfighter Athletics program (softball and volleyball teams) and monthly dinners at a local restaurant, to our annual family holiday events like our Christmas celebration or Summer Fun at one of the local waterparks in Fresno.
All of our events are at no cost to our Veterans – we operate solely off grants and donations received from our community and corporate sponsors. We work with other businesses and Veteran Service Organizations (VSOs) to bring about new programs such as our partnership with California Service Dog Academy and Central California Adaptive Sports Center to ensure every generation of Combat Veterans successfully integrates back into their local community.
