Patriots Honor – “Giving Back To Those Who Gave”
The mission of Patriots Honor is to empower our wounded veterans to pursue their passions in life while overcoming the challenges of rehabilitation and reintegration into civilian status. Patriots Honor is dedicated to enabling our veterans who lost limbs in combat to pursue their recreational passions by providing state-of-the-art prosthetics and top-of-the-line equipment.
Wounded Veteran Run is proud to support our local student veterans. Since 2015 we have donated to the Veterans Success Center at Folsom Lake College to help them with textbooks, computers, and other student needs. We also provided gift cards for gas and grocery to help over the holidays when their VA benefits are not received. Our goal is to continue this relationship and potentially grow it to help Veterans Centers at other area colleges and universities.
