Description

Penn State's Aerospace Studies Student Organization invites you to run and/or donate to the 4th Annual Freedom 5k for PTSD on November 10, 2019. This event is a joint service supported philanthropic effort to raise money and awareness for PTSD, one of the leading epidemics impacting our nation's veterans.

Our benefactor, Lone Survivor Foundation, provides support for wounded service members, their spouses, children, and care partners by empowering them with helpful techniques and tools addressing Post Traumatic Stress Disorder(PTSD), mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI), Chronic Pain, Military Sexual Trauma (MST), and Care Partner Stress. Lone Survivor Foundation restores, empowers, and renews hope for our wounded service members and their families through health, wellness and therapeutic support. Lone Survivor Foundation is a Federal 501(c)3 non-profit founded in 2010 by Navy SEAL (Ret.) Marcus Luttrell.

Our goal is to raise at least $10,000 to fund an entire retreat hosted by Lone Survivor Foundation. These retreats provide veterans with the ability to receive centralized and comprehensive therapy to relieve the symptoms of the injuries mentioned above.

The 2019 Freedom 5k honors the spirit of Navy SEAL Lt. Michael Murphy, a Penn State graduate, who made the ultimate sacrifice for his country as a part of Operation Red Wings.

Please register to run, or consider donating directly to the Freedom 5k for PTSD event if you are unable to physically attend, by selecting the 'Virtual 5k' option.
