Backpacks For Life and New Jersey Veterans Network are teaming up to host the first annual Camp Patriot Run, Ruck, Ride Challenge from June 17 to 20.

Camp Patriot’s mission is to empower American disabled veterans by providing them the right relationships and assistance so that they can once again enjoy the great outdoors. The proceeds raised from this event will help send disabled New Jersey Veterans to attend Camp Patriot. The event will take place both virtually and in-person over the span of five days. This allows individuals to participate from the comfort of their own homes, neighborhoods, local parks or join us in person at our event location which will be announced at a later date on our registration page.

“We’re excited to get back out there, bring together the community and help raise money to send deserving veterans to Camp Patriot,” says Brett D’Alessandro, president of Backpacks For Life.

“The New Jersey Veterans Network is excited to be teaming up with Backpacks For Life and doing an event to shed a light on our Anti-Suicide and PTSD Awareness campaign,” says Michael Boll, president of New Jersey Veterans Network. “All funds raised will go towards sending disabled New Jersey Veterans to Camp Patriot in Montana.”

Backpacks For Life is a 501(C)3 nonprofit organization that serves the homeless and at-risk veteran community. By regularly distributing backpacks filled with essentials to veterans on the streets and providing mentorship to at-risk veterans and their families, Backpacks For Life aims to bridge the gap between veterans and the resources available to them.

New Jersey Veterans Network’s mission is to help New Jersey veterans and their families enjoy a sustainable quality of life by creating a network of community veteran liaisons whose role is to identify veterans, and connect them with resources and solutions designed to meet the unique set of veteran needs.
