The first ever “Jania Mania Race for Veterans Charities” is on the horizon! We’re counting on you to join us in the fight to ensure that our honored Veterans are receiving the care they deserve. Below is a quick list of reasons why you should be racing to sign up for Jania Mania today.

  1. Support a good cause. Actually, several good causes! Jania Mania is raising funds for the Proffitt Brothers Foundation® to directly fund the needs of four different Veteran-focused charities, each making a unique impact on the lives of our nation’s heroes. Project Healing Waters, K9s For Warriors, Valhalla Sailing Project, and Live Water Foundation are all non-profit organizations who have their boots on the ground providing hands on direct support to Veterans right here in our communities. With each organization focused on a particular sector of Veteran care, your donations will provide comprehensive support for everything from suicide prevention to trauma recovery and even adaptive sports programs.

  2. Get some exercise. Exercise is imperative for optimal physical and mental health, but it can be hard to carve out time for it in our busy lives. Signing up for a charity 5k is a great way to incentivize yourself to put some miles in, and can motivate you to do some training beforehand. Having an outward goal of raising money to improve the lives of our American Heroes is some wonderful motivation to lace up your shoes and get moving.

  3. Participate virtually. Join in on the action from wherever you happen to be! Can’t make it out to the race location in New Jersey? No problem— Jania Mania’s virtual option is the perfect way to participate in the 5k from your favorite trail, or in the comfort of your own treadmill. Running times can be uploaded manually or timed with Strava or any other running app, making this event accessible no matter where you live or what your preference is.

  4. Have fun! In addition to supporting a worthy cause, getting exercise, and participating from anywhere, joining a charity 5k is also an opportunity to have some fun. Get connected with like-minded individuals who are also interested in aiding Veterans, while enjoying the exhilaration that comes with completing a great workout. Or, get the whole family involved and join in on the Jania Mania 3k Family Fun Run/Walk— a great option for some summer weekend fun that also contributes to improving the quality of life for our Veterans.
  1. Feel good about yourself, and maybe even win a prize. The sense of accomplishment you feel after finishing a 5k will undoubtedly be heightened by knowing that you’ve made a difference in the lives of Veterans. Each of the beneficiary organizations are 100% donation-based, and are counting on charitable contributions to be able to bring their much-needed programs to our Veterans. Simply by registering and participating, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing you’ve done a truly honorable deed. Plus, all top three finishers will receive medals whether you’re participating in person, virtually, or in the 3k. The top 5 finishers of the on-site 5k will also receive some really cool prizes, including a $170 gift card for any pair of Brooks sneakers for the first-place finishers for both men and women. There’s even going to be a raffle for some interesting items, including a completely unique, giant, handmade wooden American flag crafted by Flags of Valor.

With all of these reasons and more, you won’t want to miss out on being a part of the Proffitt Brothers Foundation’s first ever Jania Mania Race for Veterans Charities. Help us support the brave men and women who served our country, while having fun with the whole family this summer, and sign up today.
