American Legion 5K and Walk for Veterans @ Boundary Waters Park | Douglasville | Georgia | United States
The American Legion 5K and Walk for Veterans Coming to Douglasville WE WALK & RUN for those who MARCHED FOR US DOUGLASVILLE, GEORGIA (March 6, 2017) – The American Legion has just announced that it will hold a 5K Run and Walk for Veterans through Boundary Waters Park in Douglasville, GA on May 7th, 2017.

By providing this emergency funding, NEF has prevented damaged posts from closing and enabled American Legion Family members to recover from tragedy. NEF helps those affected by well-known disasters such as Hurricane Katrina and Superstorm Sandy and lesser-publicized tragedies such as flooding in South Dakota or Illinois, or wildfires in the southwest, or more recently the tornadoes in Southern Georgia near Albany.
