Description

Join the Travis Mills Foundation in Vassar, Michigan to support recalibrated veterans and their families! We run to remember the service and sacrifice of our nation's heroes. Join us in downtown Vassar, Michigan!

SSG Travis Mills who is a Vassar native was injured on April 10, 2012, on his third tour of duty in Afghanistan by an IED (improvised explosive device) while on patrol, losing portions of both legs and both arms. He is one of only five quadruple amputees from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to survive his injuries. In September 2013, Travis and his wife Kelsey founded the Travis Mills Foundation, a nonprofit organization, formed to benefit and assist post 9/11 veterans who have been injured in active duty or as a result of their service to our nation. The veteran and their families receive an all-inclusive, all-expenses-paid, barrier-free vacation to Maine where they participate in adaptive activities, bond with other veteran families, and enjoy much-needed rest and relaxation in Maine’s great outdoors.

Proceeds from Miles for Mills benefit the Travis Mills Foundation's mission of supporting recalibrated veteran families in their life after service to our country. We support these veteran families through our national retreat in the Belgrade Lakes region of Maine.
