The Paralyzed Veterans of America, Mid-Atlantic Chapter has been serving veterans and their families in Virginia and North Carolina for 70 plus years. Located at 11620 Busy Street in North Chesterfield, Virginia, they currently serve over 900 veterans. “We do everything from adapting homes and vehicles to sporting events. Anything we can do to get our veterans to live a healthy and active life” said President Robert Satterwhite. Coming up in September is the Travis Manion Foundation 9/11 Heroes Run in which the PVA Mid-Atlantic is the community benefactor of the race. A few years back they partnered with The Travis Manion Foundation to host the race in Richmond. Last year’s and this year’s committee, headed by Karen Liu, has grown the race from 100 runners to this year’s predicted closer to 700 participants. The new race course downtown Richmond brings more visibility, along with working with: Suntrust, UPS, Dominion Power, Mobility Supercenter, Wegmans, Penske Truck Leasing, Bank of America, and Legend Brewing. They also introduced the Ruck division this year, which opened up more ways to bring awareness to the meaning of service, community, and giving back to those in need. September 9th is the date this year and you can sign up through the Travis Manion Foundation at 911heroesrun.org!
