Run for the Troops 5K
An event to honor our Military and raise funds to address the needs of injured soldiers. Our donations help build homes designed for the specific injury of soldiers, other donations help combat veterans with PTSD issues.
Run for the Troops 5K – Sunday April 23rd, 2017
Most runners don’t go to most races for the cause but this event is different. This cause is one you can see the results of now. You helped us fund new homes for Joey, Josh, Kevin, Matt, Hans, and Christopher.
Now it’s Roger’s turn.
One of the things I love about running and being a part of the running community is that we run for causes. Tomorrow, Team McManus is going to lace up our running shoes for causes so very near and dear to our hearts - Veterans, Emergency Responders and their families. I was privileged and blessed to work with veterans and their families for almost 20 years at the VA. Tom's family served in World War II, Korea and Vietnam. I still have a powerful connection to the veteran community and Jeffrey Spratt,MT dedicates a lot of his work as an innovative muscular therapist to helping Veterans and Emergency Responders heal the wounds of trauma through the power of positive quality touch.
Tomorrow we run for those who are ready to make the ultimate sacrifice every day for our freedom.
Tomorrow we run to help give back just a fraction of what they and their families give to us each and every day.
Tomorrow we run with our running family as part of the Merrimack Valley Striders.
Tomorrow we run to help create better tomorrows for those willing to lay down their lives for our safety and freedom every day!
Come walk/run with us! There will be race day registration and the weather is looking fine!
To your health and wellness!
