THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Run for Recovery for PTSD June 24
Crivitz"Commander Natasha Hanson and members of Crivitz American Legion Post 413 will sponsor a Run for Recovery 5K run/1 mile walk to raise awareness of what post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is, how it effects veterans and their families, and to show honor and support to all veterans. The net proceeds from the run will go to two organizations that provide therapy to veterans dealing with the effects of PTSD. The organizations are Journey Together Service Dogs from Oshkosh and Moonlit Meadows Performance Horses from Denmark. They will demonstrate their techniques at the event.
The run takes place in Crivitz on Saturday, June 24 with the line up at 9 AM at the John Shaffer Pavilion in Veterans Park. The run/walk begins at 9:30 AM. On-line registration fees are $10 for veterans, $15 for non-veterans, and $8 for children 8-17 years of age. Children under the age of 8 are free. All participants receive a "Run for Recovery" t-shirt. Fees on the day of the event are $15, $20, and $10 respectively.
