The Freedom Run
Austin, TX US 78703
Due to the magnitude and popularity of F1 (which is the same weekend as the run) – we are postponing the run until the Spring of 2013 – a firm date has not been established, but we are working to reschedule. The thinking behind this is decision is that if we try to simply move forward, and we don't have more people sign up we won't be able to raise significant funds for the two great organizations we are trying to support.
In the coming days we will solidify our refund policy for those who have already registered. We will also make sure to update this site when we have landed on a new date.
We can't thank you enough for your willingness to support our event. Please read below to learn more about the fantastic work being done by Hope for Heroes and Honor Flight Austin.
Hope for Heroes - Hope for Heroes is a program within the Samaritan Counseling. Developed in 2007, Hope for Heroes provides mental health treatment, integrative medicine and other supportive services such as peer support, case management, health education, and community cultural competency training to meet the needs of veterans and their family members in Central Texas. Our program treats the whole person (body, mind, spirit and community) with a ground-breaking combination of traditional and nontraditional therapies. We provide individual, family, group and play therapy, psychological testing, acupuncture, yoga, tai chi, medical massage, herbal therapy, peer-to-peer groups and health education for veterans struggling with PTSD, TBI, depression, addiction, chronic pain, relationship discord, family violence and abuse. www.samaritan-center.org
Honor Flight - The Honor Flight Austin mission is to transport veterans with a specific priority given to those residing within Travis, Williamson, Hays, Bastrop and Caldwell counties from Austin to Washington, D.C. to visit those memorials dedicated to honor their service and sacrifices and return them home to their families and loved ones. Of all of the wars in recent memory, it was World War II that truly threatened our very existence as a free nation. Now, with over one thousand World War II veterans dying each day, our time to express our thanks to these brave men and women is running out. www.honorflightaustin.org More on our mission: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_VoWKh_T6aA
