Accept our challenge to help America's veterans conquer theirs.
Run, walk or ride to help change a veteran’s life.
In the midst of this global pandemic, veterans need our help now more than ever. On top of the additional health risks ill and injured veterans face with this virus, thousands of veterans with service-connected disabilities are being laid off or have had to close their small businesses. Like you, we don’t know when this crisis will end. But we do know that together we can make a life-saving difference for veterans who have made great sacrifices for our freedoms.
Join DAV to turn your at-home workouts into Victories for Veterans! While practicing social distancing, challenge yourself by signing up to stay healthy by running, walking or riding all the miles you can to help veterans of all eras conquer their challenges. Every step you take and every dollar you raise helps DAV make a difference in a veteran’s life!
We’re on a mission to empower America's veterans to lead high-quality lives with dignity and respect, but we need your help. Veterans face a number of challenges every single day – big and small. Just last year, in the land they served to protect...
- Over 37,000 American veterans were homeless.
- Approximately 7,300 American veterans died by suicide.
- And 326,000 American veterans were unemployed.
What if we told you the steps you take everyday could support veterans and their families? That by simply logging the miles you walk, run or ride, you could fuel services that connect veterans to the health care, education, and financial benefits they’ve earned? When you accept the Victories for Veterans Challenge, you’re taking matters into your own hands. Every mile you go and every dollar you raise goes toward DAV’s free services that help over a million veterans in life-changing ways every year.
How it works
Once you sign up we’ll ask you to set two goals: a fitness goal to walk, run or ride all the miles you can, and a fundraising goal to raise as many dollars as possible. 85 cents of every dollar you raise goes directly toward DAV’s programs and services! In just a few steps, you’ll have your very own fundraising page where you can easily track your progress or sync to your favorite fitness device. You’ll be able to share your activity with friends and family to raise money and awareness for disabled veterans. Never fundraised before? No problem! We’ll be with you every step of the way with tips and tricks.
