We've unleashed a new Memorial Day Tradition.
On Memorial Day 2018, the No Excuses 5K, presented by Buzz Oates, invites you to run/walk and pay tribute to military heroes, while supporting programs for veterans needing assistance.
No Excuses 5K benefits Canine Companions for Independence®. Through their Veterans Initiative™, life-changing dogs are provided free of charge to help turn on lights, pick up dropped items and so much more. Your dog is invited to join you in your support of this significant program.
With the increase in military veterans returning with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), Canine Companions is launching a pilot program to directly place service dogs with veterans with PTSD.
