This is a race setup in that there will be a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place and there will be prizes for each place. The finish line of the event will have food and will provide a place for everyone to socialize and have the prizes awarded as well as see the total amount of fund raised for the charity.
Why help our troops:
Many men and women voluntarily joined the various branches of the military to help secure our freedom here in America and also to help those abroad. They risk their lives, limbs, and mental well-being to uphold the foundation of our great country. When many return from having served they are often in need of support from the community which has often times overlooked our troops. As a people of this nation it is our obligation to support those who have given everything to protect us. Allen West says it best "We must never forget why we have, and why we need our military. Our armed forces exist solely to ensure our nation is safe, so that each and every one of us can sleep soundly at night, knowing we have 'guardians at the gate."
