Sign up before 31 March 2016 to guarantee teeshirt and size!
VNP is currently providing meals for over 300 veterans and their dependents monthly. All funds received by the VNP stay locally and provides for our El Paso Veterans! This event is the largest fund raising event for the VNP.
Packet pickup: 10 June 2016 at the VNP 4317 Dyer Street, El Paso Texas 79930 from 11am to 7pm. (VNP has two new signs making the location even easier to find!)
Donations: Can goods and clothing items in good conditions can be donated during both packet pickup and day of the event. Additionally donations can be made at any time during the race registration period here at RunSignUp.com
VNP will be conducting a bucket drop during the packet pickup and the day off the race. The funds raised during the bucket drop will go directly to the El Paso Veteran Food Pantry. The El Paso Veteran Food Pantry has established a relationship with local vendors. These relationships enable them to purchase a pound of food for .15cents.
$1 = 6 pounds of food
$2 = 13 pounds of food
$5 = 33 pounds of food
$10 = 66 pounds of food
Every bit helps, please bring a few bucks to help ensure we fill the food pantry shelves. The El Paso Food Pantry will also be accepting can food donations at their location during packet pick up!
