CAVSA Member Hosts 9th Annual 5K Run
On May 18th, New Directions for Veterans hosted their 9th Annual NDVets 5K Run/Walk to honor the veterans in their lives and to raise funds to help serve local veterans. This year, they had more than 1,000 runners and walkers of all ages at the run which takes place on the sprawling West Los Angeles VA Campus.
Since 1992, NDVets has provided thousands of veterans in Los Angeles County with comprehensive services, including permanent and transitional housing, job training and assistance, substance abuse treatment, and parenting and money management classes. More than 1,800 veterans seek assistance from the organization each year. This 5K Run/Walk helps raise much needed funding to continue to offer the life-saving services for veterans who need the support of their communities when they return home.
Check out these their pictures from Facebook – it looked like so much fun! Congratulations on a success event. For more photos check out the New Directions for Veterans Facebook page.
