Wounded Veteran Run

Wounded Veteran Run is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization inspired by the daily perseverance and dedication of our nations combat wounded service members. Our goal is to raise awareness and donations for Veteran supporting non-profits and implement programs to support and thank Veterans within our community.

The Wounded Veteran Run event is currently in its third year. Starting in 2011, it was created by a local personal trainer as a way to promote physical fitness while simultaneously paying honor to her brother who was severely injured while serving in Afghanistan on 14 July 2010. While spending time with her brother at Walter Reed Hospital she came in contact with many other wounded Veterans and wanted to find a way to help support all of our injured troops. An annual 10K, 5K, and 3K running/walking event on Memorial Day seemed like the perfect solution.


What: 3K/5K/10K run/walk and Kids Fun Run

Time: Kids Fun Run: 8:30am, 10K: 9:00am, 3K & 5K: 9:20am

Where: Folsom Parkway Trails. Corner of North Parkway Dr. and Blue Ravine Rd. Folsom, CA. Behind the Plaza at 25005 Blue Ravine Rd.

Cost: 3K: $25, 5K and 10K: $30, Children 11 and under (any event): $15
An online processing fee will be added at checkout

Benefiting: Wounded Warrior Project and Fallen Warriors Memorial Organization
