COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -
The Wounded Warrior project is teaming up with several veterans’ organizations for Run as One.
Run as One will begin at 10 a.m. Saturday, at 3950 Mark Dabling Blvd.
The run was founded to help honor Marine veteran Clay Hunt, who was an outspoken advocate for veterans. He took his own life in 2011.
Veteran Chase Cowen, who lives in Colorado Springs, had his military career cut short by serious injuries, but says participating in events through the Wounded Warrior project has helped him become more connected to his community. His injuries prevent him from running, but Cowen will participate in the Run as One by walking with his service dog.
The race is being held in more than two dozen cities including New York, Los Angeles, Dallas, Denver and Washington, D.C.
