Success at Orion 5Ks for Veteran Charities
Orion would like to thank all the runners, sponsors, and donors who supported the 2nd Annual Patriot Challenge 5K in Cary, NC, and the Go the Extra Mile for the Vets 5K in West Chester, OH.
The 2nd Annual Patriot Challenge 5K was held September 26, and, despite constant rain, welcomed most of the about 200 runners that signed up! The event raised nearly $16,000, with an additional $12,000 of in-kind donations for Operation Military Embrace, Children of Fallen Patriots, and Warrior Hike! Orion matched the donations with over $2,000.
Runners enjoyed the All American Paint Booth where they added stars and stripes to their arms, legs, face, or hair to show their colors. Members of Rolling Thunder led runners along the road portion of the course, and the top three male and female runners received prizes provided by Omega Sports.
2nd Annual Patriot Challenge 5K
The Go the Extra Mile for the Vets 5K on November 15 was a great event! The 5K experienced a 22% increase in runners from last year, with 290 registered runners! All proceeds from the event directly benefit our partner Veteran Organizations, The Heroes' Fund and Operation Military Embrace.
With beautiful weather and great guests like Mr. Red, Wayne Hutchison, Service Officer from the VFW Ohio, and Gapper, the event went extremely well and raised almost $15,000 raised for charity. Runners enjoyed a race after party at the Dingle House Irish Pub.
