Event Details

This is our 2018 WINC: 2 Million Strong and Rising 5K (Run/Walk/Bike).

According to a Dept. of VA report dated November. 21, 2016, the total Veteran population in the United States, Puerto Rico, and Territories/Foreign, as of Sept. 30, 2016, was approximately 21,368,000 million. The population of Women Veterans numbered 2,051,000. That's over 2 million female veterans, and that number has grown substantially since the 2014 report! Over 46,000 of them are right here in Michigan! But when asked, many people think the number of women veterans is much, much lower. We at WINC: For All Women Veterans want to change that and by having a day where we raise awareness about women in the military and about those who served we think that is a good step in that direction. That day is June 15th of every year. Our belief is that with more awareness, more veteran women will have access to the deserved proper health care, greater access to specialized treatment for military sexual trauma, and experience optimum treatment when seeking assistance at a VA facility, among other things. It’s important to make the nation aware of the many military women in their ‘own back yards’, because we are so often forgotten. Being made to feel as if our service doesn't matter is the worst thing female veterans can experience, yet it happens more than people know.

When: Complete your race any time during the month of June 2018 (if you can run it on June 15th, even better!)

Where: You choose the course and you time yourself (you’ll report your finishing time to us).

Why: To raise awareness about women in the military and help support their needs through WINC: For All Women Veterans and because it’s fun! 

COST: $30, which includes your WINC 5k shirt, medal, bib and shipping. Plus, all proceeds will go to WINC: For All Women Veterans.

Get a group of friends together or go it alone! The choice is yours! We hope you “get your race on” in the name of WINC!

WINC's MISSION:

WINC: For All Women Veterans’ mission is to revitalize the female veteran. And WINC is not just for female veterans who were injured or just female veterans who were injured in combat. WINC is for ALL female veterans and female active duty members. Promoting the physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional health of the female veteran is one aspect of our organization.
With more awareness, we believe more women will have access to the proper health care, the proper treatment for military sexual trauma, and even the proper treatment when going to a VA facility, among other things. The other aspect of our organization is to educate the nation on the needs and challenges that a wounded female warrior has had to face as well as to provide the solutions that family members, friends, and employers will need to welcome these women back into society with open arms.
