The city of Leesburg is teaming up with Habitat for Humanity and the Albany YMCA to build a home for a veteran.
The organizations will come together to host their fourth annual Heroes Run next weekend. All proceeds will go towards building the home for a lucky vet.
Albany YMCA CEO and retired Marine Dan Gillan says it is very personal for him.
The event will also be a great way to celebrate and help those veterans in need.
"So, it's not that they are forgotten, it's about keeping the awareness there so communities can ban together to support them," said Albany YMCA CEO Dan Gillan.
Participants can choose to run in the one mile, 5K, and 10K races.
The event takes place on February 27 at 1:00 pm. Click here for more information on how you can register.
