“Bridge to Opportunity” 5K Run/Walk across the Ben Franklin Bridge is in support of job development for Veterans at the Veterans Multi-Service Center (VMC) in Philadelphia. Job development is one of many comprehensive services provided by the VMC, we work with Veterans to search and secure employment, as well as build their resumes and provide job training. Our goal is to generate funding and awareness for our job development program to ensure that more Veterans gain and maintain employment. In essence, it’s about providing local Veterans with opportunity! Last year the VMC placed over 300 Veterans in jobs and trained 200 Veterans in various related skills. We plan to exceed those numbers in the upcoming year and need YOUR support in providing services. The Run/Walk will commence, continue across the bridge to Camden, and return to our Headquarters. Registration begins at 9:00AM and the Run/Walk will begin at 10:00AM. Registration is $35 and will include an impressively designed and iconic T-shirt!!
