About This Activity

Our Soldiers go through a lot even after they’ve returned from deployment, and sometimes they need a hand up to return to a normal civilian life. It’s Our Turn, Inc., a Veterans group composed of men and women who have served in the Armed Forces believe there is great healing in helping their fellow brothers who have sacrificed and fought for our freedom. What started in 2013 as a few men from Deep Creek Community Church visiting the homeless Veterans of Charlotte County has blossomed into a non-profit organization physically and spiritually making a difference in numerous soldier’s lives! If you would like to read more about this organization or how it is helping our local veteran’s please visit their website at   

Now “It’s Our Turn” to stand up and run to help the Veterans in need in Charlotte County!

Sign up today to participate in the 2nd Annual Memorial Day 10K & 5K Race on Memorial Day, Monday May 25, 2015 along the beautiful waterfront of Punta Gorda.

This race is only open to the first 300 people, so don’t miss out on this spectacular timed event!
