A Change in the PA Hero Walk Philosophy

Since the first PA Hero Walk in 2009, the group has raised and given the Wounded Warrior Project hundreds of thousands of dollars and have helped many veterans with their efforts. In the winter of 2013 the group decided to make a change in 2014 and dedicate their fundraising efforts to focus on Pennsylvania veterans from all branches and from all eras. Since this change the group has has received unanimous accolades for their decision to keep the money raised in Pennsylvania to help Pennsylvania veterans. The PA Hero Walk has rasied over $1.8 Million to date for our veterans.

The group continues to emphasize helping individual veterans that need help in the following areas listed below.

  • HOUSING
  • FOOD
  • CLOTHING
  • CAR AND HOME REPAIR
  • APPLIANCE PUCHASE OR REPAIR
  • UTLITY PAYMENTS
  • AUTO PURCHASE

If you know of a Pennsylvania veteran in need of help, please refer them to their County Veterans Affairs Director or our website at PAHEROWALK.COM

THE PA HERO WALK
9th Annual PA Hero Walk

Back in 2009 we never imagined that the PA Hero Walk would be leaving the steps of the Philadelphia Art Museum nine years later. But here we are, eight years older, with the same intense passion to show Pennsylvania that we care about our veterans. Our goal this year, like every year, is to demonstrate the sacrifice that our men and women in uniform make for our freedom by taking two weeks and walking 320 miles. We also plan on raising $300,000 this year for our veterans!

Where do you fit into the PA Hero Walk? You can make a monetary donation to help our veterans. You can show your support by joining us in a segment of the walk in June. You can join us in one of the many towns along the route that hold a celebration for us and our veterans. Or you can just say hello as we walk along our 320 mile trail.

For more info on dates and times, please read through our website, www.paherowalk.com or call Dave Rapacchietta - President at 412-915-4956
