Our nation’s veterans have made great sacrifices to defend our freedoms. In return, the very least that we can do is make sure they receive the support they deserve.
This week, you can show your support for wounded veterans by attending the Lt. Dan Warrior Ride and other community events.
September 10-14 is the 4th Annual Lt. Dan Week in Charleston. More than 250 veterans are expected to arrive in Charleston to participate in the Warrior Ride.
The Warrior Ride is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing rehabilitation and recreation to wounded service members. The organization conducts adaptive cycling events and other activities across the U.S. The Warrior Ride is working in conjunction with Independence Fund, an organization whose mission is to provide therapies and guidance that service members are otherwise not receiving.
On September 14, the Lt. Dan 5K Walk/Run is scheduled to take place. The 5K will begin at 10 a.m. The race will start and end at the Bulldog on Hagood Ave. Admission costs $35 per person. You can register for the 5K here.
Lt. Dan Week will come to a close with an exciting concert featuring Gary Sinise and the Lt. Dan Band. The concert will begin at 5:30 p.m. and last five hours. Tickets are $20 per person and are available for purchase online. The concert will take place at the Citadel’s Johnson Hagood Stadium.
Those who register for the 5K will receive a free t-shirt and complimentary ticket to the Lt. Dan Band Concert.
All proceeds from the events of Lt. Dan Week will go to help veterans and their families.
I highly encourage you to attend these events honoring the brave men and women who have fought for our country. This week promises to be a great time for South Carolina Lowcountry residents of all ages!
