THE STORY:

Run For Veterans wrote -

Run For Veterans 5K and Push-Up Challenge 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.


On Sunday, July 26 in Burr Ridge IL we'll host a 5K and Push-Up Challenge. All proceeds will benefit Lone Survivor Foundation. Our goal is to give them $30,000, enough to fund 10 to 15 families to attend a therapeautic retreat.  We need your help!


The Push-Up Challenge starts before and continues after the 5K so you can do both!  What is the Push-Up Challenge? Simple. You get 90 seconds to do as many push-ups as possible.

Anyone that wants to give it a try is welcome, it does not matter how well or how many push-ups you do. We have all levels of athletic abilities. 

Tell your family, friends, colleagues, and other networks what a great cause you're supporting.They can give any amount or  if you'd like to have a bit of fun, suggest donations based on total push-ups accomplished.
