National Running Day: Stay Healthy by Staying Active
Get moving on the first Wednesday of June as we observe National Running Day. This day is for runners to declare their passion and commitment to running. This is also a great time for beginners to start their life-changing devotion to staying healthy through running. Whether you alone or with a friend, try going out for a run.
National Running Day is a global celebration of running that encourages people from all over the world to be more active in their lifestyle. It does not matter whether you are a slow or fast runner as long as you stay active.
Running does not have to be running over long distances. A simple run around your block or taking your favorite puppy for a long walk is still a surefire way of being active. As you do so, you also inspire other people to join you.
Among the many people we should emulate, our troops, both active duty and retired, are the best ones to follow. They always ensure healthy living by being proactive in their physical workouts. Running is one of the many activities they do to keep themselves fit.
As role models, our servicemen and women deserve praises and recognition for their invaluable service to our nation. At present, there are tens of thousands of U.S. troops deployed overseas. Others have returned home. Some of those who have returned home for good and subsequently discharged or retired from the service are experiencing hard times due to inability to find jobs and failure to secure government benefits.
Remember Our Vets on National Running Day
On National Running Day, we should also remember our struggling veterans who are our nation’s unsung heroes. They badly need our support.
We at Veteran Car Donations are continuing to exert our best effort to generate funds for the benefit of our destitute veterans through our car donation programs all over the country. We turn over the proceeds from the sale of donated vehicles to our nonprofit organization partners to enable them to sustain and even expand the various services they provide to our former troops and their families.
Do you have an old vehicle you don’t need anymore and want to dispose of? Call us today at 877-594-5822and find out how you can support our worthy cause.
