In this post, we wanted to shine some light on Warriors’ Best Friend, a non-profit that we have done some work for in the past. For those who have not heard of their organization, they help veterans who are battling post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury. They do this by helping pair veterans with service dogs that have proven to help with recovery.
What’s Going on?
The organization is hosting an inaugural 5K Run/Walk to help support local homeless pets and veterans Saturday, September 23rd. The cross-country course is located at the Warriors’ Best Friend’s beautiful 65 acer property in Liberty, MO across from Liberty North High School.
The regular race begins at 9:00AM and at 10:15AM a second race begins for the participants that want to bring their four legged friends with them! Veterans run FREE as well!
Why Come Out?
Fun activities for kids of all ages will be available throughout the day! There will also be booths for several veteran organizations to provide information about local resources.
At some point during the day, make sure to stop by the Warriors’ Best Friend Barn to meet some of the dogs-in-training, learn how these special dogs are making a huge impact upon the live of wounded veterans!
Proceeds from the event benefit Warriors’ Best Friend. To register go to www.warriorsbestfriend5k.com to help rescue homeless dogs and provide life-saving animals to veterans in need.
