Description

_ The 2018 Waves For The Brave 5K Trail Run & Hike:

Wave Academy is hosting WAVES FOR THE BRAVE 5K Trail Run & Hike. This event honors veterans who are bravely overcoming the challenges of post-traumatic stress and promotes mental health therapy in our community. More than 20 percent of all veterans in San Diego are dealing with post traumatic stress, totaling about 11,000 men and women. 

The timed 3.1 mile route follows a well-maintained dirt trail that loops around the lake with beautiful views. The event begins and ends in the grassy, shady park next to the lake. The 5K route goes clock-wise around the lake. Water is available at the start/finish and at 2 miles. 

Register as an individual, veteran, youth, team captain or team member.

Sponsor the event and be recognized for supporting veterans and mental health in our community.
