About This Activity

Each year, Operation V.E.T's goal is to host "Run For a Reason" to raise money and awareness for non-profits that support our military and their families. The first organization Operation V.E.T has chosen is Legacies Alive. All profits raised from the race and event activities will be donated to Legacies Alive, a non-profit organization that strengthens and supports the families of our nation’s fallen heroes and brings national awareness to the life and character of service members who paid the ultimate sacrifice in the Global War on Terrorism.

Run for a Reason, hosted by Operation V.E.T has two options for participaints, including a 5k run or obstacle course. 

Come Join the Operation V.E.T and Legacies Alive Team for a fun and challenging day of activities. Afterwards, stick around for a healthy lunch and mingle with our nation's Veterans, Gold Star Families and many of our local sponsors.
