Operation First Response presents:
The 10th annual 2018 Walk For The Wounded and Warriors 5K Run. Registration 8:30AM | Run 10:00AM | Ceremony 11:00AM. 3-mile Walk Immediately Following Ceremony.
Live performance by Bucket List 12:00PM to 2:00PM
The goal of the day is two-fold:
1. To draw attention to the plight of tens of thousands of returning soldiers who are wounded, and whose families are facing significant financial and emotional challenges as their loved one recovers.
2. To raise funds to help meet the critical needs of these families, many of whom are crisis right now – today, in hometowns all across the country.
Operation First Response (OFR) delivers over 97 cents of every dollar raised to wounded soldiers and their families.

OFR is staffed by mostly volunteers; with the exception of one full-time and one part-time salary workers.
The 3 mile walk & 5k run will take place Rose Tree Park in Media, PA.
Walkers register here and are asked to help get donation sponsors for themselves, if possible.
Companies are also invited to become Walk or Corporate Sponsors, or to advertise in the WALK PROGRAM being distributed at the event.
People are invited to simply make a donation.
It is hard for us to comprehend waking up each day in a hostile country, putting our life on the line to protect people from terrorists who have no fear and no conscience about planning and conducting mass murder. It is harder still to imagine how it feels to be at the heart of a bomb explosion – or to be shot by snipers – or to be the target of a single man or woman whose mission is to be a human bomb. Sadly, many lives are lost. But of equal importance are the lives that are changed forever in the blink of an eye by severe wounds, life changing amputations, and painful surgeries – often followed by mounting bills at home, necessary job retraining, home renovations and more. Just dealing with the emotional scars is difficult – but with your donations OFR ‘has their back’ on the home front.
Operation First Response, Inc., supports our nation’s Wounded Warriors and their families with personal and financial needs. Services are provided from the onset of injury, throughout their recovery period and along their journey from military life into the civilian world. Financial aid varies as each case is based on individual needs ranging from rent, utilities, vehicle payments, groceries, clothing, and travel expenses.
