Show us Your Stars & Stripes – July 4th
Lee’s Summit, Missouri - Get out your runners in support of our veterans! Big Whiskey’s American Restaurant & Bar® in Lee’s Summit is getting ready to do their part at the upcoming Stars & Stripes 5K run charity event on July 4th. The race, hosted by KC Running Company, is held annually in support of different charities. Owner Troy Fitzgerald, the man behind this amazing event has teamed-up with Battle Buddy Service Dogs for the 7th annual run. “The Lee’s Summit restaurant location is still fairly new,” said Missy Creed, Marketing Coordinator. “But like all other Big Whiskey’s restaurant locations, we are big on community. Being neighborly is the Big Whiskey’s way.” Big Whiskey’s will be providing bottled water to ALL of the 5K runners, along with Big Whiskey’s Koozies to keep that water cold. “What a great cause, supporting our vets on Independence Day is not only neighborly, it’s what it means to be American,” Missy added. Battle Buddy Service Dogs provides U.S. Military veterans diagnosed with service related Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) with service dogs. The veterans that are paired with these dogs show a marked improvement in their quality of life, with 80% of them recuperating from many of their symptoms. The event takes place, rain or shine, on July 4, at 7:30 a.m. at the Summit Fair Shopping Center in Lee’s Summit, Missouri. Awards will be given to the top overall male and female runners.
