Pittsburgh Run for Wounded Warriors Supports NOD’s Veteran Career Program
Pittsburgh, PA, November 15, 2011 — The 2011 Run for the Wounded Warrior was held on November 12 in Pittsburgh, PA. 600 participants honored the brave men and women who have served our country and returned home with service-related disabilities.
Proceeds from this 5k/5 mile event will contribute to NOD’s initiation of a Wounded Warrior Careers project in western Pennsylvania, assisting up to 100 of the most severely-injured veterans and family members in pursuing careers upon their transition home from combat.
Since 2008, NOD’s Wounded Warrior Careers program has provided intensive career services to 275 veterans in Colorado, North Carolina, and Texas. Veterans in our program are achieving work and education milestones at approximately twice the rate of their counterparts without the benefit of our services.
If you were unable to participate in this run, you can still give toward the Wounded Warrior Careers program through NOD’s Donation Page.
