Description

The Home Run for Heroes is a Virtual 5K Race and 1 mile fun run for the Peewees (children 10 and under).  All proceeds will benefit the National President’s Project.  Complete one race or participate in all nine to “go on” Regional Tour and earn the title of getting a Grand Slam!  Run, walk, hike, row, swim, skip, walk a pet... any exercise will count.  You have until November 15th to complete the virtual distance.

The National Society Children of the American Revolution is partnering with Pets for Vets, a 501(c)(3) organization, to raise funds to place companion animals with veterans, many of which are experiencing PTSD. The animals are adopted and trained through donations, and each companion animal is highly trained to best meet the veteran’s needs.

Pets for Vets assists in the veterans fight against PTSD through building a safety net with the animal, creating connections, and overcoming trauma. Veterans apply for an animal through Pets for Vets and go through an interview process to match the veterans with an animal. Animals are then selected from the shelter specifically for each individual veteran and are trained before being placed with the veteran. Through this process, Pets for Vets helps to save pets from shelters, as well as provides veterans with the companions and support they need.
