The 8th Annual Race For A Soldier turned out to be another amazing event! The 10 Miler was embraced with huge numbers, the 5K had a massive turnout, and while the weather was at times in question, the good times were not.
We can't thank our enthusiastic volunteers, generous sponsors, compassionate runners and cheerful supporters enough for making our 8th Annual Race For A Soldier the best one yet!
Come back soon to learn about next year's events, and thank you as always for supporting the cause!
Once again, we're grateful to have the Tom Taylor Family YMCA as the start and finish location for the Race For A Soldier. Race participants are welcome to access the facility at no cost after the race.
Like last year, child care will be included with this year's race if you register by September 10th and while space is available.
Now in its fourth year, #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Observed on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them."
On this Veterans Day, the Permission to Start Dreaming Foundation is committed to elevating the lives of our Veterans and their families while pledging to live worthy of the 1% who serve our Country. We walk in freedom because of your service and sacrifice. Grateful.
Reflecting on that horrendous day of 9/11 at the Freedom Tower and memorial in New York is a somber experience and for thousands if not millions will always be stingingly painful. Many young men and women saw that day as a call to arms and signed up to protect our country and our way of life which includes the son of the Permission To Start Dreaming organization. His cousin was killed at the Pentagon that day leaving an indelible mark to the heart and soul of her family left behind.
