Saratoga – Walk for the Troops

The First Annual Walk for the Troops will be held in Saratoga Spa State Park on Saturday, June 28th, 2008, at 9:00am.  The 5K walk will raise funds to allow Operation Adopt A Soldier to continue its good work in shipping care packages to our troops serving overseas.  This event is open to both adults and children.  Walkers must be sponsored by friends, families or organizations.  Minimum adult sponsorship is $30.  Minimum child sponsorship is $15.  Water will be provided during the walk and lunch will be served afterwards.

Operation Adopt A Soldier has been sending packages to our troops overseas for over five years and has raised nearly all of the $100,000 it has spent on these mailing operations through donations, fundraisers and benefits.  To visit their website go here.
