Rapids Run For Veterans 5k

On Saturday, November 7th, the unit held the 2nd Annual “Rapids Run For Veterans” 5K, organized this year by Cadet Ewing, the unit’s PFO. Donuts (from Sugar Shack, an acclaimed local doughnut shop), coffee, water, and other food items were provided for Veterans and runners. Cadets participated in and helped run the event alongside student volunteers from the JRHS Center for Leadership and International Relations. The event raised a record $2K, all of which were donated to the Fisher House foundation, a charity that helps wounded veterans and their families with lodging for medical treatments that require them to be away from their homes for an extended period. All participants received a shirt designed by Commander Greenwald’s daughter (see featured image for design); however, the top ten runners each received a special version of the shirt denoting their top ten status.
