Run or walk to help veter­ans

The Enterprise - - Community Forum -

In com­mem­o­ra­tion of our fallen broth­ers and sis­ters in arms, the Ro­tary Clubs of the tri-county area are proud to spon­sor the Tri-County 5-10K Trot and Walk to be held on Satur­day, May 26 (Me­mo­rial Day week­end) in Solomons.

This event will be in sup­port of Warfighter Ad­vance, with pro­ceeds ben­e­fit­ting its Ad­vance 7-Day pro­gram. This pro­gram is a re­treat de­signed specif­i­cally for those warfight­ers cop­ing with post-de­ploy­ment stress and other de­ploy­ment-re­lated trau­mas that have ad­versely im­pacted their suc­cess­ful rein­te­gra­tion. It fea­tures drug-free re­ha­bilita-

tion pro­grams and in­ter­ven­tion ser­vices.

The Warfighter Ad­vance team has helped more than 900 veter­ans since the con­cept was launched in 2003.

Our Ro­tary Clubs have part­nered with Warfighter Ad­vance and the In­ter­na­tional So­ci­ety of Ethical Psy­chol­ogy and Psy­chi­a­try to host this fun and worth­while event.

There are 30,000 Ro­tary

Clubs around the globe that com­prise the Ro­tary In­ter­na­tional Foun­da­tion. Ro­tary is ded­i­cated to com­mu­nity ser­vice, peace and fel­low­ship, and the Tri-County Trot is our way of giv­ing back to those with un­seen scars we of­ten find in our own com­mu­ni­ties.

The event be­gins at 8:30 a.m. at Our Lady Star of the Sea School in Solomons. We en­cour­age you to reg­is­ter on­line

now, or be­tween 7 and 8 a.m. on race day at the church. First prize will be $100. Sec­ond prize will be $50.
