Save-A-Joe 5K is a 5K walk/run to support the mission of Save-A-Joe Veteran Charities. The local communities in the Fox Valley help our Veterans with Education, Housing, Therapy, and Finances. The mission of Save-A-Joe, Inc. is to partner with our local small businesses, corporate sponsors, and our community members to raise money to assist these veteran service organizations.
One Hundred Percent of all proceeds will be donated to two organizations this year, one which fights veteran homelessness and the other that carries out “Operation Sweet Tooth” for deployed armed forces.

Why do we run?
First, because it’s going to be a fun day!
Also, the date is on Armed Forces Weekend,
a time to honor those who protect our nation.
But, most important, we want to support those who defend our freedom and two local organizations that do so much to help.
Don't put off registration!
