PITS FOR PATRIOTS, a non-profit charity organization dedicated to training rescued pit bulls to work as service, therapy, search & rescue and skilled companion dogs for US military veterans and retired first responders, is hosting their first annual Run for the Warriors 5K sponsored by Paws for a Cause and Tito’s Vodka at Busse Woods in Elk Grove Village, IL on Saturday June 10, 2017. 


Pits for Patriots founder Kelly Yearwood says, “We’re all about going the extra mile—whether it’s for our team, our trainers, our four-legged friends or veterans and first responders in need. We hope everyone will join us for our most ambitious fundraising push yet.”


Ticket cost is $37, and includes custom finishers medal, T-shirt, Chip Timing, Goodie Bag, Awards/Raffles, Flash Magnets, and a complimentary drink ticket for those over 21 years of age.  A portion of the ticket sales will go toward training, feeding, housing, and vet care for the rescued pit bulls we’ll pair with veterans and first responders in need.
