THE STORY:

Jodi and I will be attending the 5th. annual Yuengling Light Lager Jogger 5k later this month. We will be running to support Operation Gratitude for our troops. Most of you know I am a Veteran myself and one of my highlights was receiving care packages from family and friends back home. Our entry fee will be going towards the cause and any additional monies we can raise before the race will go directly towards Operation Gratitude. Thank you for your support, any amount you can spare will help. EVENT DATE: Apr 22, 2017 DEADLINE TO GIVE: Apr 30, 2017 The Yuengling Light Lager Jogger is a 5k run/walk that starts and finishes at America's oldest brewery, in Pottsville, Pennsylvania. In 2017 the race, sponsored by Yuengling, sold out in less than 6 days with 3,500 runners. All runners are treated to brewery tours, live music, free Yuengling Light Lager, wonderful charity auction items and other goodies! The Yuengling Light Lager Jogger is proud to announce Operation Gratitude as our official charity partner for the fifth year in a row. In 2016 we raised over $10,000 and hope to increase that to over $15,000 in 2017. Operation Gratitude annually sends 150,000+ care packages filled with snacks, entertainment, hygiene and hand-made items, plus personal letters of appreciation, to New Recruits, Veterans, First Responders, Wounded Warriors, Care Givers and to individually named U.S. Service Members deployed overseas. Our mission is to lift the spirits and meet the evolving needs of our Active Duty and Veteran communities, and provide volunteer opportunities for all Americans to express their appreciation to members of our Military. Each package contains donated product valued at $75-100 and costs the organization $15 to assemble and ship. Since its inception in 2003, Operation Gratitude volunteers have shipped more than One Million Care Packages.
