Announcing Upcoming 2018 .1K Fun Run!

Last year was our very first annual .1K Fun Run at the National Home. We had such a blast and couldn’t wait to do it again! This year’s .1K Fun Run will be held on Michigan Day, August 5th and you are invited! We want you and your family to be a part of this year’s event! Not everyone can run a whole 5K event, let alone a 1K. That’s why ours is a .1K – 328 feet! It’s an event for all ages, so bring the kids or grandkids and wear a costume. Kids 12 and under run for free, and prizes will be awarded for the best costumes, so make sure you dress up!

You can register for this event by visit All proceeds from this event will go to The VFW National Home for Children. The National Home is a national non-profit dedicated to giving veteran and military families the opportunity to build a better future. We receive no government funding and rely exclusively on private donations. This event is a way to educate people about our unique services and to fundraise.
