About this Virtual Run:  Boaters Exchange, in Rockledge, FL, is hosting their 1st annual Hope for Heroes virtual 5k fundraiser and open house.  Boaters Exchange was invited by Military Times to fill out a rigorous survey evaluating culture, recruitment, and policies with regards to hiring veterans, service members, and military-connected employees. They placed in the top 50 companies out of 2300 organizations surveyed, alongside Fortune 500 companies such as Comcast, General Motors, and Verizon!

They are inviting the community to help support the local veterans by walking, running, swimming, biking, etc. in this virtual 5k whenever and wherever you want. Boaters Exchange has partnered with National Veterans Homeless Support organization to assist them in their mission to rescue veterans lost in America. All participants will receive a 3D molded life preserver medal celebrating US Veterans.

About The Charity:  The NVHS mission is to eliminate homelessness among veterans in Central Florida. Founded in 2008, NVHS is a community based organization formed by veterans with the goal of locating and assisting homeless veterans that are currently living in our parks, woods, and streets in Central Florida. Unlike other homeless service providers, NVHS proactively goes out to find our homeless veterans where they live. Their goal is to provide basic needs to ensure survival, build rapport, and then connect them to any community organization that offers a service beneficial to them, in order to move them from homeless to housed!

Virtual Strides Partner Event: This event is part of the Virtual Strides Partners Program. Boaters Exchange will receive 100% of the net proceeds from this event after Virtual Strides’ partner costs are deducted. Proceeds will then be matched by Boaters Exchange and donated to NVHS!
