Impact a Hero Weekend
May 17th-19th, 2014
Reliant Stadium, Houston
The Impact A Hero Weekend brings severely wounded heroes from post 9/11 combat and their families together with contributors and supporters for a weekend of events. The weekend provides our veterans a chance to bond with other wounded veterans. They are able to relax and emotionally recharge as they connect with people who are also healing and recovering. The Houston community also has a unique opportunity to personally thank our heroes for their service and sacrifice, providing valuable and tangible support for their healing journey. You can get involved by participating in the 5K Walk, Run and Wheel, the Hall of Fame Gala dinner or the Golf Challenge. For more information on each event, click the Impact A Hero logo.
