Do you love running? How about running for a good cause? This summer, you can support Homes for Our Troops while also running or walking either a 5K or 10K. The 4th of July 5K in Ogden is a virtual race. This means, once you register, you can choose the date and route that works best for you. You then submit your time and get your medal shipped to you.
It costs $20 to sign up for the run and at least 15% of the proceeds will be donated to Homes for Our Troops. The registration fee includes your official race bib, your medal, and any shipping costs.
While the run is called a 4th of July 5K, you can choose any day in July to run. This means registration is open through the end of July. If you want to support the cause even more, you can purchase official shirts and hoodies online.
Homes for Our Troops is dedicated to building specially-designed custom homes for severely injured post-9/11 veterans to help them live a better life. These homes are provided with zero cost to the veterans. It is one of the nation’s top-rated veterans and military charities with nearly 90 cents of every dollar donated going directly to its veterans’ programs.
Here at Westland Ford, we hope to see you at this exciting Fourth of July event.
