“OUR NATION OWES A DEBT TO ITS FALLEN HEROES THAT WE CAN NEVER FULLY REPAY”
Join us on June 4th, 2022 for the inaugural 5K Louisville H.E.R.O. (Honor Earned. Remembrance Owed) Run/Walk/Ruck to honor military personnel who have died while serving and those who died because they have borne the battle. This unique event will feature custom race bibs and all finishers will receive a commemorative coin. This family-friendly event welcomes participants of all fitness levels, ages, and abilities.

Proceeds will benefit the newly established University of Louisville’s Veteran and Dependent scholarship as well as Veterans Club Inc.

ABOUT SUPPORTED CHARITIES
University of Louisville Veteran and Dependent Scholarship Fund
With more than 1,000 self-identified Veteran students and dependents of Veterans using transferred Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits, UofL has a large Veteran student community. While UofL has been named “Military Friendly” for 11 consecutive years, one small way the university is helping Veteran and dependent students even more is by having a scholarship fund these students can access.

This new Veteran and Dependent Scholarship fund will be used to assist Veteran and dependent students to help them achieve their academic goals and their career aspirations. The fund will be administered through the soon-to-be-announced Center for Military-Connected Students. The intent is that UofL will begin offering scholarships for the fall 2022 semester.

Veterans Club Inc.
Veterans Club Inc is a local non-profit organization that focuses on providing connection, healing, recovery, and housing for the Kentuckiana Veteran Community. Veterans Club Inc offers equine-facilitated mentoring, vocational training, and recreational therapy. Proceeds from the HERO Run/Walk/Ruck will aid Veterans in need of financial assistance to pay bills, rent, utilities, etc.
