Most Americans live well enough to enjoy the holidays, but for many of our nation’s Sheep Dogs - former and current Veterans and First Responders (Law Enforcement, Fire & Rescue & EMS professionals), that is not the case. These courageous men and women put their lives on the line for us each and every day, giving us the gift of protection and security. It’s time for us to give them and their children the gift of a Merry Christmas.
Your participation in (or donation to) the NWA Turkey Trot provides the funding needed for our Christmas Outreach program, which gives the children of struggling Sheep Dogs gifts to open at Christmas.
