5k raises awareness for military invisible injuries
Col. Craig Baker, 180th Fighter Wing commander and Pam Hayes, founder of The Arms Forces and coordinator of the I Believe I Can Fly 5k, address runners and supporters before the race Oct. 18, 2015 in Swanton, Ohio. Men and Women of the 180th FW traded combat boots for running shoes, joining local community members in a 5k race, hosted by the Arms Forces Organization, raising awareness about traumatic brain injuries. The Arms Forces provides education and programs allowing veterans past and present, who have a traumatic brain injury or post-traumatic stress disorder to find understanding, purpose and direction as they face the other war while living at home with their invisible injury.
