We’ve all heard it: Activity Combats Stress. But what about the stress of a child -- a child whose military mom or dad is away for months at a time, serving in a scary place? Or what about the children anxiously watching their parents struggle with battle wounds, like PTSD, that they can’t even see?
Our Military Kids is all about these kids. Since 2004, our donors have helped them do baseball, gymnastics, camp, not to mention music, arts or tutoring. Time and again, activities like these have reduced their stress, improved school performance, raised self-esteem, and even boosted the well-being of their whole family. Today, application numbers are higher than ever, but the mission at Our Military Kids remains unwavering and clear: Empower the kids who sacrifice for our country. Their parents deserve it, and they do too.
We encourage you to support Our Military Kids by donating to one of the teams participating in this year's Washington, DC Area British Reliability run. You'll be donating to a great organization that is empowering children with sports, arts, and enrichment during parent deployment or recovery.
