Anyone that has come in contact with a Wounded Warrior will tell you how amazing they are. You would think there would be a bitter and angry attitude coming out of every one of these people.
Young people who have had their whole life changed, dreams shattered, and bodies wrecked serving their country with a horrible outlook on life.
That is absolutely not the case.
I have had the honor of training a few Wounded Warriors and their can-do attitude is infectious and inspiring. You have a chance coming up soon to help them and challenge yourself too.
Grissom's JROTC program is doing a 5K to raise money for their program as well as the Wounded Warrior Project. Never done a 5K? Why not try this one?
We had several from boot camp who did the race last year as their first ever 5K. You can do it too. Run some, walk some, just keep moving until you cross the finish line.
Here is a message I got from the race director not too long ago.
We hope you are training and getting ready for the 3rd Annual Grissom JROTC Wounded Warrior 5K!!  We have big plans on February 25, 2012 at 8:00 so plan to be at McGucken Park to see the Chinook and Apache helicopters land to kick of the festivities!!!  The Patriot Guard Riders and Vets with Vettes will return to help make this a morning of patriotic family fun!!!  The cannon will signal the race start and there will be many surprises along the route and at McGucken Park!!! Happy Training!!
