The DAV 5K Run to Honor Veterans presented by Encore Boston Harbor is a run and walk that thanks those who served. Help further the mission of DAV to ensure our injured heroes are not alone on their road to recovery. When you participate in the DAV 5K and encourage others to support this event, you are investing in the lives of our wounded American heroes who have sacrificed for our freedoms.
In 2019, over 1200 participants raced their way along DCR Castle Island and raised over $200,000 to support the DAV’s mission of empowering veterans to lead high-quality lives with respect and dignity.
Together, we are fulfilling our promises to the men and women who served.
Hey! We heard you! Chip timing will be provided for all 5K and mile participants.
We are excited to showcase the Top Teams and Top Individual Fundraisers. The Top 3 Teams & Top 3 Individual Fundraisers will be awarded on race day at the Closing Ceremonies.
