Warrensburg Runs for America’s Wounded on November 2 [INTERVIEW]
The Wounded Warrior Project is committed to serving wounded veterans of this generation that bear both the visible and invisible wounds of wars, from burns and amputations, traumatic brain injuries and paralysis, to combat stress, post-traumatic stress disorder and depression.
Regardless of your political views, most Americans on either side of the fence agree that our military deserve all the respect and thankfulness that we can give. Sometimes we worry so much about our soldiers abroad that we can forget about what happens when they come home. That's where the Wounded Warrior Project comes in. They work tirelessly to help the families and the wounded in any way they may require. However, this kind of project takes funding.
You can help with a big walk and run happening in Warrensburg. I spoke to Kevin Lake, who is one of the organizers of this walk and run for the whole family.
The Run for the Wounded 5k will take place on Nov. 2. It’s for all ages, and will begin in front of the Elliot Student Union on the UCM Campus. Registration starts at 8:00 a.m. and the race starts at 9:00 a.m. All proceeds will go to the Wounded Warrior Project. Registration is $10. Register online here. The first 200 to register will receive a free WWP Wristband. For questions, contact Kathleen Coleman at 651-497-6995.
