Thank you to everyone who joined us in 2020 to celebrate the DAV’s 100th Anniversary by running, walking and rolling to support the DAV Department of Massachusetts. Together we helped further the mission of the DAV to ensure our injured heroes are not alone on their road to recovery. Thank you for investing in the lives of our wounded American heroes.
