More Info

This event comes to us as a result of a 29-year civilian APG employee participating in a Leadership Program, Landmark Worldwide.  Part of the program is creating a community project, which led to a 5K and 1 Mile event to show "Respect-Honor-Gratitude for Veterans". They have risked their lives, left their homes and families to fight for our freedom and they deserve so much more than they are getting when they return home from tours of duty.  So, all of the proceeds from this event will go to support the Elkton Veterans Center in Elkton, MD which also includes the Aberdeen, MD branch and the Salisbury, MD branch.  The goal of the project is to help local soldiers/veterans as they integrate back into the everyday life that they left behind in order to go out and fight for our country. Some need time to search for a job and understand what it's like to be a civilian again; others need support coping with day to day activities.  Money raised can help them live a happy, healthy, and safe life as an American citizen again. This event can also help support the continued work being done for those suffering from PTSD and maybe it can help eliminate some of the stigma that goes along with "mental health" today and help reduce the growing number of suicides among soldiers and veterans. With the proceeds from this project, I see a possibility of happy and healthy soldiers/veterans contributing to their communities again.
