Help us Support the Wounded Warrior Project and the Pfc Wesley R. Riggs Memorial Scholarship Fund by Participating in the 2013 ORWFD 5K Run/Walk
On October 5, 2013 at Barbers Hill ISD Eagles Football Stadium, the Civil War Canon will fire again telling all that hear that we support our men and women in service and start the 5th annual ORWFD “Chip Timed” 5K Run/Walk; a few minutes later, another “blast” will be heard starting the Kid’s Fun Run. Every single dollar raised goes to the Wounded Warrior Project and the Pfc Wesley R. Riggs Memorial Scholarship Fund.
A separate “Stroller Derby” will then start for all parents to push strollers or pull wagons with their babies and toddlers aboard showing their little hearts support our men and women in the military!
Barbers Hill Bank, a branch of Anahuac National Bank, is exclusively sponsoring all expenses for the 4th year in a row, so that all entries and donations go to our Warriors.
The volunteers you see at the ORWFD events give of their time and their heart to put this event on every year to make sure we provide a first class race and a lot of fun!
The official 2013 ORWFD 5K Run/Walk T-Shirt will also be on sale at the race to raise more money for our heroes. The first 50 entries received a free T-Shirt.
An estimated 400,000 warriors suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
An estimated 320,000 warriors suffer from traumatic brain injuries (TBI).
Over 51,300 warriors suffer from physical injuries.
These statistics only tell part of the story that don’t include the trauma, anxiety, and worry of the families who wait and the families who received our warriors back from the theaters of war!
Help us help the warriors and their families by your support of the Run/Walk!
You understand the severity of veterans’ battlefield injuries — amputated arms and legs, disfiguring burns, paralysis, and invisible wounds, such as TBI’s and PTSD. The recovery from these injuries takes a lifetime of commitment.
Please stand by our nation’s wounded by participating in the 2013 Chip Timed 5K Run/Walk and the Kid’s Fun Run on October 5, 2013 which benefits the Wounded Warrior Project (90%) and the Pfc. Wesley R. Riggs Memorial Scholarship Fund (10%).
