*A portion of race proceeds will be donated to American Veterans Helping Veterans. Based out of Naperville, AVHV focuses on supporting the needs of veterans throughout the surrounding areas that struggle to reestablish themselves back into society after returning from combat.
The mission of American Veterans Helping Veterans is based on inherent human conditions. People need to have a sense of self worth in order to lead happy and productive lives. American Veterans Helping Veterans understands that Veterans often have difficulties re-establishing themselves in society due to injuries such as TBI and PTSD. This leads to unemployment and emotional distress. AVHV believes that by helping the veteran improve their financial and medical hardships, positive steps can be taken towards their return to rich and fulfilling lives.
