Run to Remember
Dynamic Physical Therapy is hosting its annual “Run to Remember” 1 mile and 5K Run/Walk on Saturday, April 18, 2020. The 1 mile starts at 5:00pm and the 5k starts at 5:30pm. Runners will follow a trail through the scenic Terra Bella Village development.
All proceeds from the event will benefit the Wounded War Heroes, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to honor and empower wounded war heroes. Dynamic will have a table where people can write thank you notes to our active military, in addition to having a “Wall of Heroes.” All veterans, active military, and their families are encouraged to submit a picture for the wall to honor our heroes.
Honoring our Heroes
"Dynamic chose Wounded War Heroes because we respect their mission to empower the wounded hero," said Steve and Michelle Sierra, owners and founders of Dynamic Physical Therapy. "As a clinic, we have seen these heroes and the family members of our heroes come through our doors and the difficult realities of military service are evident in their lives and hearts. They carry the burden and fight for all of us," added Steve. "They live in our community. They are our siblings, cousins, friends and neighbors. These brave individuals put their lives on the line and their service and sacrifice should be honored by all of us."
"We chose to hold a race because it's a community event that celebrates health, camaraderie and the freedom that our heroes defend," said Michelle. "If we can help improve the life of a wounded hero or their family either by having them come through our doors or by donating time, money, or our efforts to the cause, it's the least we can do."
Packets can also be picked up beforehand on April 16th from 4-7pm at the Myrtle Drive location in Covington.
