America’s veterans put their lives on the line to keep us safe, so we must do all we can to protect those that defend our communities, our freedom and our security. For the second year in a row, the Digital Media Solutions? (DMS) team has pledged to honor our veterans by committing teams of runners to endure an ultramarathon course across the state of Florida. The DMS Heroes & Legends Ultramarathon will bring attention to the needs of American veterans, with proceeds benefiting Headstrong.
From New Smyrna to Clearwater Beach, Team DMS will tackle a grueling course across Florida, racing around the clock to achieve what seems impossible.
After working tirelessly and facing unimaginable risks during active duty, many of our veterans suffer from their hidden wounds of war. Partnering with Headstrong, the DMS Heroes & Legends Ultramarathon is a moment to show our support and recognize the incredible contributions of America’s veterans. Running relay style, four teams of DMS runners will traverse the 220-mile course to raise funds for veteran mental health services.
Taking it easy isn’t an option for our veterans. While DMS isn’t saving lives like our heroes, we’re doing what seems impossible in support of our communities. Watch the video to see how the power of Team DMS helped us achieve our 2019 goal of running across the state of Florida while raising $50,000 for the Gary Sinise Foundation.
