This year's race is benefitting Southeast Tennessee Veterans Coalition. They provide outreach to all military service persons including veterans and their families by creating partnerships between VA providers and local agencies.
This effort grew out of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars with a desire to partner with the Veterans Administration in providing services for the increasing challenges of these returning veterans, while satisfying current needs of existing veterans and their families.
Epilepsy Foundation of Southeast Tennessee (EFSETN) along with over 100+ other agencies and businesses are a part of this community grassroots effort. This grassroots coalition of agencies is called the Southeast Tennessee Veterans Coalition. Presently, EFSETN chairs the Coalition.
