Fourth Annual Aerojet Rocketdyne Wounded Veteran Run May 26

The fourth annual Aerojet Rocketdyne Wounded Veteran Run fundraiser to benefit local injured veterans through the national Wounded Warrior Project and local veteran-support organizations, will be held on Memorial Day, May 26.

Founded in 2011 by local college student Courtney Hvostal in honor of her brother who was severely injured in Afghanistan, the Wounded Veteran Run has quickly become a favorite annual Memorial Day event for the community.

In 2012, Aerojet Rocketdyne joined as the run’s title sponsor. Last year’s event drew approximately 2,000 participants and raised more than $47,000 for the veteran support groups. This year, the Purple Heart Fund and the El Dorado Hills Veterans Memorial Park have been added as additional beneficiaries.

The 2014 3K/5K/10K run/walk event, to be held in Folsom, features professional timing on a certified race course and a fun run for kids. Online registration is now open at Family, school, corporate and group participation in the run/walk is encouraged as a meaningful way to support and thank our brave service men and women over Memorial Day weekend!
