Pennsylvania's 12th Annual Walk For The Wounded & Warriors 5K Run
Saturday, May 18th join CBS 3 News Anchor Ukee Washington, The Phillie Phanatic, and thousands of sponsors, supporters, active & retired Military, and Wounded Heroes for Pennsylvania’s 12th Annual WALK FOR THE WOUNDED and WARRIORS 5K RUN.
BE A HERO TO A HERO! Each year this statewide Fundraiser, Festival and Tribute Event draws thousands to Rose Tree Park in Media, Delaware County. Funds raised enable Operation First Response (OFR) to give critical financial assistance to wounded veterans and their families. In fact, over 11 years, this event has raised more than 2.6 million dollars…and helped more than 20,000 wounded veterans in serious need of aid to supplement their medical, transportation and general living expenses while dealing with life altering injuries incurred in service to their country.
Hosting the event is Ukee Washington, News Anchor for CBS 3 TV and the Phillie Phanatic hasn’t missed a single WALK since it began in 2007! There will be live music as well as DJ music, plus food, military vehicles, a climbing wall, and zip-lining across the park, as they anticipate the arrival of an active service Chinook Helicopter – landing right in Rose Tree Park!
The WALK begins at 10am and The WARRIORS 5K RUN begins at 9am. There is no need to register for the WALK, but to register for the WARRIORS 5K (a professionally timed event) visit RunSignUp. Click here to learn more about Operation First Response.
