Segway4Vets program to benefit from Veteran's Day 5K sponsored by Wood & Huston Bank

Saturday, November 10, 2012

Wood & Huston Bank staff are coordinating a Veterans' Day 5K run/walk to support the Segs4Vets program.

The deadline to register at a reduced fee is Friday, Nov. 2. The fee will be $20 per participant until then. Afterward, the fee will be $25.

Those participants who register prior to the deadline will receive a T-shirt.

Race day registration will be from 7:15 to 7:45 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 10, at the Veterans' Memorial on the southeast corner of the Saline County Courthouse lawn. The race will begin at 8 a.m.

Segs4Vests is a grass-roots effort sustained and administered by volunteers work to provide resources to veterans who have been injured during their service.

Candidates for the Segs4Vets program have sustained injuries which have resulted in the amputation of one or both legs, extensive soft tissue and muscle injuries, traumatic burn injuries, spinal cord injuries, and other neurological injuries and disorders.

The Segs4Vets program provides successful candidates with a mobilty device not yet available through their present benefit package, which does not draw attention to their disability.

The goal is to help improve the quality of their lives.
