In anticipation of the 9th annual Run for Veterans Race, 7Hills Homeless Shelter CEO Jessica Andrews speaks with Pete Hartman in the Nancy Blair Operations Studio.
The four-mile run started in 2009 as a way to commemorate veterans and service members on Independence Day. Since 2010 the proceeds of the race have gone to 7Hills, which provides services to veterans and low-income veteran families who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
The race starts at 7:30 a.m. on July 4 at the Veteran's Memorial Park in Fayetteville. Advance registration ends July 2.
