As a tribute to all our Veterans, the St. Peter Knights of Columbus presents the 5th Annual Fallen Heroes 5K Run and 1 Mile Walk. Proceeds from this event will go to the Wounded Warrior Project. This event has been approved by the Wounded Warrior Project and is listed on its website as a “Proud Supporter Event”.
If you are not familiar with the Wounded Warrior Project, I invite you to visit their website. Their mission is “To Honor and Empower Wounded Warriors”. After reviewing the website, I know that you will agree this is an organization with a noble mission and that our Wounded Veterans are worthy of our support.
