Veterans Day Weekend

DCR Fort Independence at Castle Island

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the seventh annual DAV 5K Boston at DCR Fort Independence at Castle Island. A special thank you from the DAV 5K Boston race committee to our amazing partners from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the DCR, State Police, Boston EMS and the City of Boston to host a safe and responsible family-friendly event experience for our local veterans.

Despite a cold and rainy morning, nearly 700 finishers ran, walked and rolled to show their support for the DAV Massachusetts chapter.

Thank you all for your support. We are incredibly honored to have your support for the DAV MA and our local veterans.
