The National Veterans Day Run aims to serve as a nationwide demonstration of support for veterans and the men and women currently serving in the United States Armed Forces. Currently, the event includes organized races spread across 15 cities in early November, all united under a common cause. Across the country, these events can include a one-mile walk, a 5K and 11K race, and a half marathon, depending on the city. Proceeds will be used to allow veterans and active-duty military personnel to participate in these races at reduced rates. For its 2014 event, the National Veterans Day Run has partnered with Operation Gratitude: a charitable organization that annually distributes more than 100,000 care packages to veterans, first responders, wounded warriors, caregivers, and active military personnel deployed overseas. Event coordinators encourage participants to support the efforts of this organization by pledging a donation during the registration process.
