About This Activity

Invite your family, friends & neighbors to join us for 2nd Annual Veteran’s 5K/10K Run/Walk presented by Contra Costa Blue Star Moms CA Chapter 20. This event was created to raise awareness and show support for our many local veterans and raise money to provide support for active duty service personnel, promote patriotism, assist Veterans organizations and assist in homeland volunteer efforts to help our country remain strong. All proceeds from this race benefit local veterans programs Contra Costa Blue Star Moms supports in our area.
