Battle Buddy Service Dogs


Battle Buddy Service Dogs is a veteran operated, non- profit 501(c) 3 organization that provides U.S. military veterans diagnosed with service related Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) with service dogs. They pair rescued dogs with the veterans, and train them together to build a trusting bond similar to the battle buddy the veteran had while serving.  Studies show that 80% of the veterans experience improvement in their symptoms when paired with a service dog. If the Battle Buddy Service Dog program can improve the quality of life for veterans and their loved ones then we have fulfilled our mission.  For more information about this organization, go here.

COVID - 19 PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES

We are taking a number of steps to enhance the health safety of the event for the participants, volunteers and staff, including:

We will expand pre race packet pickup to two days to reduce congestion and will make it a drive through packet pickup to minimize contact.  

 

We will spread the porta potties out at the start/finish area and add sanitizing stations for people to use. 

 

We will assign people bib numbers based on their projected starting time and then start them in waves of 15 or so every 30 seconds. We will spread participants out at the start by will putting small cones in the starting chute for the participants in each wave to stand at to keep them socially distanced from one another.  We will ask people to stay away from the starting area until we call them up by bib number.  

 

We will set bottles of water out at the water station instead of cups of water and we will not hand them their water, having them pick up their bottle instead if they so choose. 

 

We will use bib chips rather than shoe chips so that we won't need volunteers to remove them after they complete the race. We won’t have any volunteers in the finish chute, but will instead provide grab and go bags for them to get their finishers medal, bottle of water and snack to reduce participant contact with volunteers.

 

We will text their times to the finishers who have signed up to receive them and will have a QR code on their bib numbers that will allow them to get their time with their smart phone. 

 

We will mail age group and overall awards to them after the race to reduce the need for participants to hang around after the race.
