BRKC's Fundraiser:

Run For Veterans 5K and Push-Up Challenge

THE STORY:

Run For Veterans is dedicated to raising awareness and funds to support veterans mental health care needs.  Over 385,000 Iraq & Afghanistan veterans have been given a mental health diagnosis, or more than 52% of new veterans that visit the VA.  Over 8,000 veterans commit suicide each year, a rate of 22 per day.  Veterans mental health needs our attention more than ever before. 

Join us Sunday, July 27 in Burr Ridge IL for a 5K run/walk and Push-Up Challenge.   All proceeds will benefit Volunteers of America-IL, a 501 (c) (3) that helps over 250 veterans each year transition to a healthy mental state.   Our goal is to give them $30,000.  We need your help!

The Push-Up Challenge starts before the run/walk so you can do both!

What is the Push-Up Challenge? Simple. You get 90 seconds to do as many push-ups as possible.    No knee push-ups here- we’re following the standard push-up form.   

Please ask your family, friends, colleagues, and other networks to sponsor you for the run/walk or push-up challenge.   They can give any amount but few ideas are to donate based on your mile time, finish time,  and/or total push-ups accomplished.
