From Our Editors
The Western North Carolina Chapter of SDIA supports and promotes the national mission on a local and regional level. SDIA /WNC's primary mission is to assist our fellow Sheep Dogs (veterans and emergency personnel) in need. From financial assistance in times of hardship to simply reaching out with a phone call or visit to let them know someone cares. We pride ourselves with our esprit de corps, camaraderie, and the desire to serve. Service does not have to end after you stop wearing your uniform. Whether you are military, law enforcement, fire, or EMS, you have a natural desire to serve and SDIA provides the opportunity to continue to serve your brothers, sisters and community. Our Mottos are "Helping Others Is A Way Of Life", and "Helping is Healing”. The Hero Hustle 5k/10K will be a themed race, with the option to dress as your favorite hero, whether it be superman or a fireman or a nurse, all heroes are encouraged. 100% of proceeds raised stay in WNC to support our Sheep Dogs and their families.
