Active Heroes is an organization that provides financial assistance and job placement services to military families in need. The competition is the nation's largest fundraiser for military families.
This is such a great way to give back to those who serve our country, and at the same time encourage people to get fit.
Each registration fee is used to help a military family through Active Heroes. Active Heroes supports a broad range of needs including assistance with financial issues such as mortgage, car payments or utility bills. Active Heroes also helps with special needs for military children including those with fallen parents, travel assistance for military families including vehicles for disabled veterans, job referral services for unemployed veterans and business attire for unemployed veterans while job searching.
