The University of Virginia Foundation, in partnership with Bad to the Bone Endurance Sports, will present a check to the Wounded Warrior Project on Friday between noon and 2 p.m. at a special post-race celebration at the Dabney Grove Pavilion in the U.Va. Research Park.
The "4 the Wounded 5k," held June 2, was the U.Va. Foundation’s second annual research park 5k. With the collective effort of more than 20 representatives from firms located in the U.Va. Research Park serving on the organization committee, 50 corporate sponsors, roughly 1,000 runners and walkers, and many community race-day volunteers, more than $90,000 was raised for the Wounded Warrior Project.
The Wounded Warrior Project provides programs and services to assist injured veterans and their families during their recovery, rehabilitation and transition. Whether through caregiver retreats, combat stress programs, career and education services, or adaptive sporting opportunities, Wounded Warrior Project’s vision is to help make this generation of wounded warriors the most successful and well-adjusted in the nation’s history.
