WHY: Impact A Hero Weekend gives Houstonians an opportunity to join national celebrities in thanking our severely wounded servicemen and women for sacrificing their minds, bodies and sometimes their lives.

Through multiple events around the country, IPP raises funds that are used for unencumbered grants to those who have made tremendous sacrifices for us and our country. These grants help in covering lost wages of parents and spouses who are required to stop working to provide care for our heroes.

Impact A Hero is a non-partisan 501(c) (3) organization consisting of individuals and corporations dedicated to providing emotional and financial support for our severely wounded or disabled post-9/11 combat veterans and their families.  Visit www.active.com/donate/impactahero5k  for more information.
