On Sunday, Novermber 3rd, five dedicated Team Mission Continues runners will take to the streets of New York City for the 2013 ING NYC Marathon. While their inspirations for doing so will vary, their purpose remains the same: to help fund fellowships enabling post-9/11 veterans to continue their missions of service as citizen leaders at nonprofits in their communities.
Driven by the deep belief that veterans are civic assets and leaders, The Mission Continues challenges returning servicemen and women to continue to serve here at home. Through six-month community service fellowships, The Mission Continues awards and empowers veterans with the opportunity to transform their own lives by serving others and directly impacting their communities.
Since its founding in 2007, The Mission Continues has awarded over 760 fellowships to veterans in 46 states across the country.
