Our goal is to support youth and veteran programs within the Salem/Roanoke community.
The funds that are generated from the race will go towards our intern program and our winter coat drive for our homeless veterans and their families.
Intern Program: We want to give the inner city students an introduction to education. They will be paid $13/Hr. and will be allowed to work up to 20/Hrs. per week. They can start at 14 years of age-18 years of age. We will support 6-8 students in our first year.
Coat Drive: We worked with One Warm Coat and Verizon last year that allowed us to give over 200 winter coats, hats, gloves, Under Armour layers and sweaters. We also had Holiday meal, which was a huge success for all.
Scholarships: We will also offer scholarships to students that want to further their education. There will also be an opportunity to support students that would also want to attend a trade school.
ROTC: We will help students learn about the opportunities within the Military. You will see each branch of service represented at our events. This allows the students to learn about life in the Military.
On November 12, 2022, we will host our annual 5K/10K Race. Click here for more information. Please join us!
