EVENT DATE: May 25, 2015
As most of you know, I'm a lifelong Detroit Tigers fan, and couldn't be more proud of the alliance The Mission Continues has with Wins for Warriors--Justin Verlander's foundation to help veterans and military families (read more below). I'm coming to Motown for Memorial Day to run around downtown and cross the finish line at Comerica Park. All to help further veterans efforts toward successful reintegration through continued civic action and engagement. Come join me or support me from afar!

On Memorial Day 2015 Opportunity Detroit and Justin Verlander’s Wins for Warriors are coming together to engage the community in local mental health programs and services supporting veterans and their families, while having an unforgettable experience in downtown Detroit.
This isn't just any race! Participants will end with an unforgettable experience of running along the warning track at Comerica Park while family and friends cheer them on from the stands.
Also, in case you were wondering, 9K is just about 5.6 miles. There will be a 1 mile walking option that will also finish at home plate!
