WKU Colony to host Wounded Warrior Run

Oct 25, 2011

COLONY (Western Kentucky) — ATO will host Wounded Warrior Run — a one-mile race around campus to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project.

The Wounded Warrior Project is a non-profit organization that helps veterans,” said ATO President Diego Leal Ambriz. They provide them with services such as therapy, counseling, to help include them back into society. They provide them with the resources they need to treat their body injuries.

Several of our fraternity members are party of ROTC so they have seen how this organization helps veterans. They feel really passionate about it.

The run begins at 6 p.m. on South Lawn and should take participants about thirty minutes to complete, Leal Ambriz said.

Participants are encouraged to show off camouflage attire during the run.

After the run, there will be a guest speaker from the Wounded Warrior Project, Glenn Kunkel, who will share his experiences with Wounded Warrior, as well as being a veteran.

All of the proceeds will go directly to Wounded Warrior, Leal Ambriz said.

Two dollars comes in. Two dollars goes out. All the proceeds as they come go right to the Wounded Warrior Project,” he said. “This is our first event. We are really counting on the support of the community here at WKU to make sure we can raise money for this good cause.
