San Antonio, Texas (PRWEB) January 18, 2013
TexPTS will host the Selma-Schertz Salute to Service Members 5k Run/Walk on Saturday January 19, 2013 to raise funds and awareness for Operation Comfort. This is the third consecutive year that Texas Physical Therapy Specialist (TexPTS) and Operation Comfort have joined forces to raise funds for wounded service members and their families.
Operation Comfort, a San Antonio based charity, has assisted thousands of wounded service members by providing emergency financial assistance, comprehensive adaptive sports programs, and a unique Automotivation program for the many wounded soldiers who have a passion for building and restoring cars.
The run will start at 9:00 A.M. on Saturday, January 19, 2013. The Blue Bonnet Palace in Selma, Texas will serve as both the start and finish for the race. Immediately following the race, participants are invited to stay and celebrate at the TexPTS and Operation Comfort after-party. The post-event soirée will feature an awards ceremony and participants will be treated to complimentary food and beverages.
Last year, the Selma-Schertz 5k Run/ Walk generated more than $9,500 for wounded soldiers. “The TexPTS team is proud to host an event that raises money, awareness, and builds community support for such an amazing charity,” says Race Director Michael Keresztes PT, CMPT. “It’s our way of saying thank you and honoring the men and women who have sacrificed so much to protect and serve our country.”
Keresztes also added that it is not too late to sign up. Late registration begins at 7:30 A.M. on race day.
