5K to benefit veterans houses


DAYTON — Fisher/Nightingale Houses, which support military veterans and their families, will benefit from the proceeds of the virtual Red, White and Run 5K hosted by Wright State University’s Air Force ROTC Detachment 643.

Online participants will have from April 3-10 to complete the annual race, and they can do it wherever they desire — in their neighborhood, on a beach or even on a treadmill.

Organizers anticipate about 200 participants. The goal is to raise $5,000 for three Dayton-area Fisher/Nightingale Houses.

Fisher/Nightingale Houses enable military and veteran families to stay together during times of medical emergencies or crises when they need the love, comfort and support of their families the most.
