Healing Our Heroes at Home

Join us for the GEA Run/Walk Honoring Veterans.

Every day 22 veterans commit suicide in the U.S.* This statistic underscores the need for veteran support and care once they arrive home. That’s why we want you to show up on Friday, Nov. 16 to walk or run 2.2 miles with us and Shepherd’s Men, who will carry 22-lb. packs. 

Let’s come together for our veterans.

Friday, Nov. 16

12:15 – 1:15 p.m.

AP3 Lawn 

Registration begins at 10:30

$20 cash-only donation covers event t-shirt, registration and Food Truck Friday admission.

All proceeds benefit Shepherd’s Men and Dogs Helping Heroes – two organizations helping to improve the quality of post-war life for veterans. There is also onsite help for anyone dealing with depression or anxiety. Contact Key Haysley, your EAP specialist at [email protected] or 502-452-4551.

ABOUT Dogs Helping Heroes

This nonprofit provides trained service dogs to first responders and military personnel injured during their careers. Its inspiration is to improve the daily lives of disabled military veterans, wounded first responders and Gold Star families who would benefit from a service dog.

ABOUT Shepherd’s Men

Shepherd’s Men works to support SHARE, a rehabilitation program that focuses on assessment and treatment for service men and women who sustained a mild-to-moderate traumatic brain injury, along with co-occurring Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder or other mental health concerns, from service in post-9/11 wars.
