Volunteerism & Giving

The Wounded Warrior Project® 8K Run Series raises funds and awareness for our nation’s injured service men and women who battle physical and psychological damages of war. The series provides the public a chance to honor these brave men and women by fundraising and taking part in a community run alongside them. Thanks to sponsors, 100% of funds raised through the run series goes directly to WWP to help fund the 19 programs and services they offer free of charge.

The run in Jacksonville will be held September 6 at Metropolitan Park. Your registration fee includes run number, timing and festivities. Under Armour run shirt guaranteed to the first 1,500 registrants. There will also be a 1K Kids Fun Run!
