Registration Now Open for the Fourth Annual Run Around the Lake for Wounded Warriors
Fairfax Station, VA -- Get outdoors this fall and help Halfaker, J.M. Waller Associates, Inc. and tripol-E support the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) by participating in the Fourth Annual Run Around the Lake for Wounded Warriors. Thanks to all of our supporters last year who collectively made a record donation of $12,512; with your help, we hope to surpass last year’s donation to show our continued appreciation and support of our Nation’s severely injured service men and women.
The 4.7 mile race is scheduled to begin at 8:00 am on Sunday, October 3rd at Burke Lake Park in Fairfax Station, Virginia and is a formal timed event open for competitive runners as well as those looking to have a great time supporting the WWP.
To maximize support to our Nation’s heroes, the three service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses supporting the event are covering all costs associated with the Run Around the Lake, ensuring that 100% of the registration fees and donations go to WWP’s mission to honor and empower injured service men and women.
WWP is a non-profit organization with the unique goal of ensuring today’s Veterans are the most successful, well-adjusted generation of veterans in our Nation’s history. WWP was founded on the principle of warriors helping warriors, and offers various outstanding service programs. WWP’s signature service programs include peer mentoring, adaptive sporting events, and Project Odyssey—a potentially life-changing program that engages groups of Veterans with combat stress and post-traumatic stress disorder in outdoor adventure activities that foster coping skills and provide support in the recovery process.
This year’s family friendly event is set to be a fantastic opportunity for competitive runners, joggers, walkers and those simply wanting to donate to those who have sacrificed greatly for our nation. We hope to see you at the start line on October 3rd!
