The DAV 5K will honor veterans with in-person and virtual events
November 6, 2021
DAV (Disabled American Veterans) will hold its 2021 DAV 5K at The Banks in downtown Cincinnati on Nov. 6, and also offer a virtual option to be completed any time from Nov. 6–11, 2021.
The DAV 5K is a walk, roll, run and motorcycle ride that thanks those who served and raises awareness of the issues our ill and injured veterans face every day. The virtual DAV 5K allows participants to show support for veterans from anywhere they choose.
Event registration costs, which fuel DAV’s mission of service, are as follows: the in-person event is $30 for adults and $15 for VIP Veterans and youth 6-15; the virtual event is $40 for adults and $25 for VIP Veterans and youth 6-15. Pricing for the virtual event includes shipping of the participant shirt, bib and medal. The DAV 5K is open to individual runners and walkers as well as participants using wheelchairs, hand cycles and motorcycles and groups who wish to form teams now across America.
Registration is now open at DAV5K.org.
Additionally, there will be a virtual ceremony on Saturday, Nov. 6, starting at 9 a.m. to celebrate participants of the DAV 5K with special guest video tributes. The program will be live streamed on DAV5K.org and facebook.com/DAV5K.
“We will honor our veterans in Cincinnati and around the globe with our hybrid in-person and virtual DAV 5K event,” said DAV CEO Marc Burgess. “The DAV 5K event continues to spread our message to honor the sacrifices of our nations heroes throughout America. Your support helps us serve more veterans, at no cost to them, and allows veterans the opportunity to live their lives with the respect and dignity they deserve.”
DAV empowers veterans to lead high-quality lives with respect and dignity. It is dedicated to a single purpose: keeping our promise to America’s veterans. DAV does this by ensuring that veterans and their families can access the full range of benefits available to them, fighting for the interests of America’s injured heroes on Capitol Hill, providing employment resources to veterans and their families, and educating the public about the great sacrifices and needs of veterans transitioning back to civilian life. DAV, a nonprofit organization with more than 1 million members, was founded in 1920 and chartered by the U.S. Congress in 1932. Learn more at dav.org.
