The DAV 5K Run to Honor Veterans is a run, walk, roll and motorcycle ride that thanks those who served and raises awareness of the issues ill and injured veterans face every day. The DAV 5K National Series is presented by DAV, a nonprofit organization that helps more than 1 million veterans in life-changing ways each year. The mission of the DAV is to ensure our injured heroes are not alone on their road to recovery.
The organization provides more than 700,000 rides for veterans attending medical appointments and assists veterans with more than 300,000 benefit claims annually. In 2015, DAV helped attain more than $4 billion in new and retroactive benefits to care for themselves and for veterans, their families and survivors. All services are provided free of charge.
DAV is also a leader in connecting veterans with meaningful employment, hosting job fairs and providing resources to ensure they have the opportunity to participate in the American Dream their sacrifices have made possible.
With nearly 1.3 million members and nearly 1,300 chapters across the country, DAV empowers our nation’s heroes and their families by helping to provide the resources they need and ensuring our nation keep the promises made to them.
