For the benefit of the Wounded Warrior Project®

Dan Flaugh was a SPC E4, Calvary Scout in the United States Army and served his country on the front line as a Re-Con Scout of Bush's Surge on Baghdad, Iraq. Dan was honorably discharged from the Army in 2008. In December 2011, after struggling with PTSD and depression, Dan took his own life.

The Flaughless 5K was started by Dan's friends and family in 2012 as a memorial to Dan and a tribute to all soldiers struggling with the mental and physical damages of war. The proceeds from the Flaughless 5K benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.

For wounded warriors returning from active duty around the world, the most difficult part of homecoming is adapting to the daily challenges of everyday life. The Wounded Warrior Project® was established to provide tangible, practical support for the wounded – helping them to heal both physically and mentally.

If you are unable to participate in A Flaughless 5K but wish to donate directly to the Wounded Warrior Project.
