Red River Charitable Foundation Hosts 2nd Annual “Rock Your Camo 5K & Dirty Dash” to Support Local Veterans
Claremont, N.H.– April 21, 2016 – The Red River Charitable Foundation (RRCF), Red River’s philanthropic organization, will be hosting its second annual “Rock Your Camo 5K & Dirty Dash” this Saturday, April 23, in Claremont, New Hampshire. All proceeds from the event will benefit local Veterans.
RRCF has enlisted the help of over 70 volunteers as well as a number of different national and local sponsors to help build on the success of last year’s event. Veteran partners include Operation Hat Trick, The VA Medical Center in White River Junction, the Veterans Yoga Project and the Friends of Veterans. All proceeds from race registrations, sales of t-shirts and food will go towards Veteran programs that RRCF supports including homelessness prevention, heating assistance and financial support for wounded service members.
Along with raising funds for veterans, RRCF is hoping to drive a greater sense of community engagement through the event. Local radio station Q106 will be on site broadcasting live and Senator Kelly Ayotte of N.H. will be taking part in the festivities.
The 5K road race will be open to runners of all ages and the RRCF will award medals to the top runners. RRCF has also announced a new Dirty Dash event, which will be a muddy obstacle course for kids. Attendees who do not wish to participate in the runs can still enjoy the music, food, face painting, beer and more. A number of food vendors will be on site and a portion of their proceeds will be added to the total donation.
“We are very much looking forward to Saturday’s event. Honoring the men and women who have served is a huge part of the foundation’s continued mission,” said RRCF director Kim Vacca. “There has been an overwhelming turnout of supporters, and we’re on pace to almost double the number of runners from last year!”
Rock Your Camo will take place at the Arrowhead Recreation Area in Claremont, N.H. on Saturday, April 23. For more information about the event visit www.rockyourcamo.com or follow RRCF on Facebook and Twitter at @RRCFRocks.
