The 2nd Annual Vet-Mazing Race

Home / Up & Coming / The 2nd Annual Vet-Mazing Race

Written by Lisa Wishmann

Our 2nd Annual Vet-Mazing Race is on November 12th – only 5 and 1/2 weeks away! What is the Vet-Mazing Race? It is a fun, fitness-themed race for all abilities where teams of four compete in events around the community to raise money and awareness for our veterans.

The Vet-Mazing Race is in support of the Recon & Sniper Foundation, which focuses its resources on emergency financial funding, professional development, career mentoring, and active network building to help with veteran suicide prevention and community re-integration.

Anthony was a Recon Marine from 2006-2014, thus we decided to give back to an organization that has helped him and fellow veterans in the past. One of the hardest things for a veteran after a combat deployment is coming back to civilian life, and the Recon & Sniper Foundation has helped many find guidance and a purpose.

The 2nd Annual Vet-Mazing Race will begin and end at Moro Performance, with a silent auction during the post-race celebration. Last year between personal donations and our silent auction we raised $3,527 – and that was with only a few weeks of planning! This year we know we can do even better and make a bigger impact for the veteran community!

Some businesses/people that have already pledged items for our fundraiser and auction include:

  • the cheel – $50 gift certificate
  • Impressions Day Spa – certificate for a haircut
  • Pin High Golf Center – 2 certificates for range time and private lessons, totaling $700
