Donate to the Wounded Warrior Half Marathon and 10K Fundraising Project and support our men and women of the military. Proceeds from this campaign benefit two organizations that support the military and their families. The Fisher House Foundation provides "comfort homes" built on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers. These homes allow family members to be close to a loved one during hospitalization. Also benefitting from this fundraising campaign is the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP), which serves military service members who incurred service-connected wounds, injuries, or illnesses on or after September 11, 2001.
