Wounded Warrior Project

This past Saturday, The UVA Foundation, along with Bad to the Bone Endurance Sports, hosted the 2nd annual 4 the Wounded 5k! The on and off-road event that was held at the University of Virginia Research Park to raise money for Wounded Warrior Project, which benefits wounded veterans returning from overseas.

There were 984 Central Virginians running for a terrific, and often overlooked cause.

The mission of the Wounded Warrior Project’s Mission is to honor and empower wounded warriors.  To foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation’s history.

  • To raise awareness and enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members.
  • To help injured service members aid and assist each other.
  • To provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members.
 Wounded Warrior Project™ (WWP) serves military service members who incurred service-connected wounded, injuries, or illnesses on or after September 11, 2001 and their families. On that date, America watched in horror as approximately 3,000 people died including hundreds of firefighters and rescue workers. Many warriors note a sense of duty to volunteer for the military following these tragic events.
A generous, tax deductible donation to Wounded Warrior Project enables them to help thousands of injured warriors returning home from the current conflicts and to provide assistance to their families. As the number of wounded steadily increases, it is easy to see how the needs of these brave individuals also increase.
