More than 50 DynCorp International team members in Afghanistan participated in a virtual 5K walk/run in support of the Operation First Response Walk for the Wounded, a fundraiser that directly benefits wounded soldiers and their families. The DI team raised nearly $1,500 to support the organization.
Walk for the Wounded
The seventh annual Walk for the Wounded 5K was held May 2, 2015, at Rose Tree Park in Media, Pennsylvania. The event aims to draw attention to and raise funds for the wounded U.S. soldiers returning home and the financial and emotional challenges they face. The family-friendly event is Operation First Response’s largest fundraising initiative, which also includes a shorter Walk for the Wounded, a ceremony honoring our troops and a children’s activity area.
Operation First Response
Operation First Response, Inc., supports wounded warriors and their families with personal and financial needs. Services are provided from the onset of injury, throughout their recovery period and along their journey from military life into the civilian world. Financial aid varies as each case is based on individual needs ranging from rent, utilities, vehicle payments, groceries, clothing, and travel expenses.
