Why we RUN!

Kroger’s Veterans ARG is comprised of Kroger Associates with military experience and those that wish to support veterans seeking to contribute to the improvement of the company and surrounding communities. On june 17, 2017 the Veterans ARG will host its 4th Annual Honoring Our Heroes 5K.

We believe that we owe a debt of gratitude to our military veterans who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom and for those that are blessed to have returned home.  While there are many races that support national veteran’s organizations, we believe we have a great opportunity to provide and opportunity for our customers and associates  to  celebrate the service of Veterans who reside in the local Cincinnati and Dayton surrounding areas of Kroger’s general offices and stores.

HOH5K Signature Event presented by Fountain of Health and Kroger

The group Friends In Service of Heroes (FISH) will be presenting a service dog as a surprise to a military veteran to help improve their quality of life for them and their family. Many returning military personnel and veterans face a myriad of challenges that can be aided with the use of a service dog, including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depression, immobility and inactivity. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2014, about 3.4 million veterans had a service-connected disability. Service members and veterans are provided with highly specialized service dogs that help them find a new level of independence in their post-combat life.

Located in a former roadside speakeasy on US Route 50 heading west into the city of Cincinnati, Fifty West Brewing Company first opened its doors in November of 2012. Since then, one thing has remained the same. Every time you have a Fifty West beer, you know it was handmade in small batches with a focus on the four virtues we hold closest to our hearts: craftsmanship, tradition, innovation, and patience.
