~ Good Sam Steps For Vets 5k Walk
We are excited to present the Good Sam Steps for Vets, a 5K fund raising walk at the Rally in Phoenix on March 1, 2015 on the famed track at the Phoenix International Raceway. This event will start off our final day at the Rally and will help raise money for the Fisher House Foundation.
The Fisher House Foundation has provided over 5 million days of temporary lodging, free of charge, to over 180,000 military families, saving them over $200 million dollars in costs. Fisher House Foundation builds 6,000 to 17,000 square feet houses with up 21 suites in each house on military and VA installations across America. These houses are built by Fisher House Foundation and staffed by volunteers to support the needs of military families while their loved ones are going through rehabilitation from injuries they incur in service to us.
The Good Sam Steps for Vets 5K (3.1 mile) walk will begin promptly at 7:30 AM on Sunday, March 1st at Gate 8 across from the tunnel. After check in, we will then proceed through the tunnel onto the race track. We will make three loops around the one-mile oval ending at the track Start/Finish line just in time for the Salute to Veterans Parade. You will have the opportunity to raise money for the Fisher House Foundation by creating your own fund raising page on our website. Raising money will be easy because you send out emails to all your contacts and ask them to support you by going to your web page and donating with their credit card.
