Team EVA (Every Veteran Appreciated) will be running 7 marathons in 7 days to raise funds and awareness for Hope For The Warriors®! Eva will complete 184 miles, running in honor of a different service member for each mile.
We are asking the community to donate to military families and join her in her run. Register today to join Eva on her mission of supporting the military community!
You do not have to participate in all 7 of her 26.2-mile runs, but you can pick a day to join her for the last segment of her run. For a suggested donation of $50, you can run as many days as you like and receive a special collectors coin.
Be part of the Team and encourage Eva along as you support military families. The routes will be posted online once they are confirmed. Long Island Veterans are honored along the course each day.
