Biggest Team

New this year is our Biggest Team Challenge.  Come up with an awesome name, choose a race, create a Team during registration and encourage your friends to join.

Completing the challenge as a team is also a great way to train together, schedule a team meetup, connect online and keep each other accountable.

As an added bonus we will be awarding the largest team with our Biggest Team patch once registration has closed.  Each member of the team will receive The Virtual Run Challenge Biggest Team patch.

“Did you know there are an estimated 55,000 homeless female veterans in the U.S. on any given day – 70% of whom are single mothers?

Please join our team captain, Ms. Veteran America 2019 Top 25 Finalist Kat Wagner, in running/walking the 2019 Home of the Brave virtual 5K, and a portion of your registration fee will be donated directly to Final Salute, Inc., a nonprofit whose mission is to provide safe & suitable housing to homeless female veterans through three very important programs:

1)      Housing Outreach Mentorship Encouragement (H.O.M.E.) – which provides transitional housing, on-site case management, food, clothing, transportation, child care subsidy/assistance, employment support, and more

2)      Savings Assessment and Financial Education (S.A.F.E.) – which provides emergency financial assistance with past due rent, security deposits, and utility assistance, as well and financial budgeting education courses

3)      Next Uniform – which provides FREE business attire, accessories, image consulting, makeovers, and professional headshots for women who are transitioning out of the military uniform and into the civilian workforce.

Female veterans have been called the invisible homeless – please join us in showing them that they are not forgotten and that they have our support.

No woman who fought for her country should have to fight for a roof over her head.”
