RACE FOR A CAUSE: A PORTION OF THE PROCEEDS FROM 7th ANNUAL 650 AM WSM SPRINGER MOUNTAIN FARMS 5K RUN & WALK TO BENEFIT THE JOURNEY HOME PROJECT
5K Run & Walk Takes Place Saturday, March 14 in Nashville, Tenn. at Grand Ole Opry Complex
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (March 12, 2015) – Far too often when veterans return home from serving our country, the tolls of war are too great for them to bear alone. War has left some of our bravest service personnel with life-altering injuries, or horrific psychological scars that make it difficult to re-enter civilian life, and many are hesitant to seek the help they need. Moreover, cutbacks to veterans’ services from the federal government have put a strain on healthcare, education and job opportunities for veterans. This Saturday, March 14, Nashville and surrounding communities can make a difference in the lives of these veterans through participation in the 7th Annual 650 AM WSM Springer Mountain Farms 5K Run & Walk at the Grand Ole Opry Complex, from which a portion of the proceeds will benefit The Journey Home Project.
The Journey Home Project, of which country music star Charlie Daniels is Chairman of the Board, and his long-time manager, David Corlew a co-founder, connects donors to veterans’ organizations that do the most good in helping military members and their families receive good healthcare, have access to education programs and connect with job opportunities that fit their skill sets and financial needs. It exists to assist other not-for-profits in securing funds to help causes that benefit veterans of the United States Armed Forces.
