UNITED WAY OF LONG ISLAND'S TEAM MISSION UNITED WILL RUN FOR THE 135,000 VETERANS AND MILITARY FAMILIES ON LONG ISLAND: JOIN THEIR EFFORTS BY SHOWING YOUR SUPPORT!
Team Mission United is a dedicated group of premier runners who will be competing in support of both active military and veterans. Long Island has New York State’s largest veteran’s population and one of the highest concentration of veterans in the US.
Mission United is devoted to providing critical programs for veterans as they re-acclimate to civilian life. The program focuses on employment services, education, financial services, health and housing support.
Team Mission United is comprised of runners sponsored by organizations who offer significant support to United Way of Long Island. Team sponsors include:
- Flushing Bank
- Suffolk Transportation Service, Inc.
- Local 338 RWDSU/UFCW
- Ruskin Moscou Faltischek, PC
Team members are currently training to dedicate their Marathon to Mission United and want you to join them in spirit for the 26.2 miles they will run on Sunday, November 6, 2016.
Each runner will both compete to provide awareness of the Mission United program and raise funds in support of veterans.
Team Mission United invites you to help by making a donation in support of their efforts. Each runner is working hard to raise funds on their own as well as receiving support from the companies they work for.
