About the Race

The race will consist of three events: a 1-mile fun run/walk, a 5K, and a 10K. The race will take you on a tour of downtown Wilmington’s beautiful historic buildings and along the scenic Cape Fear River waterfront. At the end of the race local restaurant Front Street Brewery will have an ice cold beer waiting for all participants. All proceeds will go to the Purple Heart Homes nonprofit organization.


About the Cause

 

Purple Heart Homes‘ goal is to help reintegrate veterans into the community, and to proudly acknowledge the sacrifice they have made on our country’s behalf. Whether it is adapting an already owned home, building a home from the ground up, or adapting and modifying a foreclosed home, Purple Heart Homes is committed to guiding the veteran through the entire process. Their ultimate goal is to empower the veteran – giving him/her a full complement of skill sets that allow them to be a functioning member of their family, as well as a contributing member of the community. Some veterans return and can’t fit their wheelchair into their kitchen. Purple Heart Homes is there to help them.
