The Heroes Run Marathon
Organized by: Dennis Scott
What is Heroes Run, It's our way as a community to say thank you to all that serve, have served and who protect us overseas and at home. This event will help a person earn a degree, it will help a family find health and wellness, and it will memorialize all that has been scarified for us. Our goal is to open our regions and possible the first Emergency Care-MASH Facility in Western NY that caters to Military, Veteran and their families directly without the wait at the VA Hospital! Imagine getting the simple care needs without the wait, plus added services to help our members through wellness programs and without the red tape. This will also help connect service dogs with members in need, with the proper training. Finally to award members who are currently serving or ready to serve this nation with needed scholarships that are critical to services that are necessary to returning troops in Medical and Mental Health, Physical Therapy, Biomedical Engineering -Mechanical Engineering, Legal/Political Science and Sports Medicine. Through Project Good 2 go (www.projectgood2go.org) we have already started the mission, We have created a portion of the facility with Fitness Facility open at no cost to all veterans and current military personal and family, along with Physical Therapy services and Clinical Massage. We have helped Veterans become Personal Trainers and make a career through helping their brothers and sisters they served with along with the community through lower cost affordable services. This year we want to turn the corner and add the medical corridor and education opportunities. Our research shows that within less than 30 days we will need to expand again, but that is a good problem to have! You can help this happen by sponsoring a runner or volunteering or helping donate. On November 8, 2015 all who have helped will witness the first wave of recipients to this project and they will know they helped the way the work was intended. Be A Hero And Help A Hero, it's your turn to return the gift of freedom!
