Our Story

Honoring Our Heroes is our way of saying thank you to the more than 2 million Active Duty and Reserves service members, National Guard members, and our nation's 23 million veterans.

Since its beginning the HOH5K has raised over $40,000 for veterans' associations.

Why We Run

The Kroger's Veterans Associate Resource Group 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. In 2020, the Veterans ARG will host its Honoring Our Heroes Virtual 5K. You can register here.

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.
