The Maryland Center for Veterans Education and Training, Inc. (MCVET) – the nation’s premier program for helping homeless veterans and veterans in need heal and achieve independence, self-sufficiency and permanent housing – invites the community to commemorate Veterans Day in a meaningful way.

 

For the second year in a row, the nonprofit’s annual 5K/10K signature fundraiser will be transformed into a virtual event to coincide with the national holiday. Runners and walkers can operate at their own pace – outside or on a treadmill – alone or with a group of friends to complete 3.1 miles for the 5K or 6.2 miles for the 10K.

 

All participants will receive a Certificate of Appreciation and virtual thank you messages from homeless veterans. They also will be automatically entered in drawings taking place Nov. 11 for such prizes as an overnight stay at the Sagamore Pendry Baltimore Hotel, gift certificates to Rec Pier Chop and Ruth’s Chris Steak House Gift Certificate, and retail gift cards.

 

Proceeds from the Virtual Run & Walk will help MCVET continue to provide Housing, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Counseling, Education & Employment Services, Case Management and other comprehensive services to help veterans rejoin their communities as productive citizens
