Grand Island High School’s Student Advisory Council and Student Council Organizations have joined forces to begin a new tradition. This year we will be hosting our first annual “Vikings for Vets” 5K race at Veterans Park.
The majority of the proceeds from this event will go to WNY Heroes, a local non-for-profit organization that was founded in 2007 to meet the needs of WNY’s Veterans and their families. The mission of WNY Heroes is to provide veterans, members of the armed services, and the widows and children of deceased veterans with access to essential services, financial assistance and resources that support their lives and sustain their dignity. It is an organization that we are proud to support, and we welcome all who are interested to join us.
In addition, a portion of the proceeds will be used to support Grand Island’s Student Advisory Council and Student Council Organizations which are dedicated to the continuous support and betterment of the Grand Island Community through volunteer work, charity donations, and community events.
