Our service men and women are the backbone of this county and we are thrilled about this partnership!
$2.00 from every race registration will go directly to Operation Gratitude to help fund the creation and shipping of care packages oversees.
You will have a chance on race day to do even more. Postcards and a letter writing station will be available at the finish line for all participants to write notes which will be included in the care packages shipped to service members.
Operation Gratitude annually sends 150,000+ care packages filled with snacks, entertainment, hygiene and hand-made items, plus personal letters of appreciation, to New Recruits, Veterans, First Responders, Wounded Warriors, Care Givers and to individually named U.S. Service Members deployed overseas.
Your tax deductible donation pays for the assembly and shipping expenses of $15 per care package. The goal is to send 100,000 packages this year. Donations are accepted online via credit card.
