5K for 50 Years

In fall 2022, we celebrated our 50th Anniversary with a series of 5K races held across multiple Nation’s Finest locations. The 5Ks allowed us to engage our communities and raise funds that will help us continue to support veterans in need, such as those experiencing homelessness or the threat of homelessness.

Event Information:

Our 5K for 50 years was held at multiple locations with various Nation’s Finest service sites participating. The 5Ks were all family-friendly events for all fitness levels and ages, with options to run/walk at your own pace. Each race had a specific date and location along with its own theme, entertainment, food, event partnerships, and more. Throughout the months of October and November, we had a wonderful time celebrating our 50th Anniversary while connecting with others in our service areas!
