The Benevolence Fund exists to provide grants to organizations that support veterans and the Run for the Wall’s mission to promote healing among ALL veterans and their families and friends, to call for an accounting of all Prisoners of War and those Missing in Action (POW/MIA), to honor the memory of those Killed in Action (KIA) from all wars, and to support our military personnel all over the world.
In addition, the Benevolence Fund provides grants to individual veterans or active duty military so they are able to participate in The Run.
There is a large population of Vietnam Veterans, our “old warriors” that participate every year to receive a welcome home, respect and healing. However, taking a cue from the Native American culture these “old warriors” look to reach out and help the “young warriors” as they return from their service to our great country. While the younger generation of veterans probably will never face the persecution from the general public that Vietnam Veterans did, Run for the Wall understands that these warriors still face the inevitable side effects—both physical and mental.
