On average, 22 veterans take their own lives every day. This is a pandemic that can be solved simply by letting
people know there are answers to their questions.

The DK5K Tough Run is a 5K obstacle course aiming to raise awareness about the challenges veterans face every day and the issue of suicide. There will be two divisions — competitive and recreational.

Funds raised will benefit the NMC chapter of Student Veterans of America (SVA) and 22-2-None, two local organizations offering free services for veterans.

Race registration is open until September 5 at
