In commemoration of our fallen brothers and sisters in arms, the Rotary4Vets Tri-County Trot 5K/10K supports Warfighter Advance. Warfighter Advance supports a series of retreats designed for wounded veterans and active duty military who have been formally diagnosed or self-reporting with Post Traumatic Syndrome Disorder (PTSD). By many accounts, it is one of the most intensive programs for veterans and active duty personnel with PTSD that is currently available in the eastern United States.
After returning home from the battlefront, these valiant warriors struggle to recover their health; rediscover civilian life, which includes finding employment; strengthen family relationships and figure out a place in American society. Their path is far from easy and many need our support, which is where Rotary (and you) comes in.
Rotary Club has partnered with Warfighter Advance to host this fun and worthwhile event. The Rotary Club of Lexington Park is just one of the 30,000 clubs around the globe that comprise the service organization known as Rotary International. Rotary International is dedicated to community service, peace and fellowship, and the Tri-County Trot is our way of giving back to those with unseen scars in our own communities.
