THE STORY:

Run Ranger Run V(5)

Teams of up to ten individuals pledge to walk, run and/or ride bicycles a combined total of 565 miles in the month of February.  Each team will raise funds for GallantFew and increase awareness for stated veteran transition issues.

Progress is being made due to dedicated and joint efforts. We need to continue our momentum in helping  veterans who continue to battle unemployment, underemployment,  homelessness and suicide.  The most recent Department of Labor statistics from March 2016 show Global War on Terror veteran unemployment is down 1.4 percent. The VA also reports a decline in veteran suicide to twenty per day from  previously reported twenty two veterans a day take their own lives.  The work of             GallantFew does make a difference and  your miles will change lives!    

 

Concept

In 2012, 3rd Ranger Battalion veteran US Army Corporal Cory Smith, having deployed to combat twice, experienced having friends killed and wounded and with his own marriage failing decided to highlight the difficult journey home many soldiers have leaving the Army by undergoing a very public and very difficult journey home himself.  Cory decided to run 565 miles in 28 days with holding his daughter Elleigh in his arms the end goal of his run.

 

As a Result

To honor Cory’s incredible effort and to continue the momentum to raise awareness for veterans issues – particularly around divorce, unemployment, homelessness and suicide – GallantFew offers an annual Run Ranger Run event.

“I also want you to know how much of an impact this event had on my life."

"Thank you for all of your help and for this wonderful event. I can't tell you how much this has brought my husband (a combat veteran) out of his shell for a while. Its been great!"

The Event

Teams of up to ten individuals will pledge to walk, run, swim, kayak and/or ride bicycles a combined total of 565 miles in the month of February.  They will raise funds for GallantFew and increase awareness for stated veteran issues.
