More than 2 million Americans serve on Active Duty, Reserves, or National Guard today, including some of our own Associates. Honoring Our Heroes is our way of saying thank you to our Active Duty and Reserves service members, National Guard members, and our nation's 23 million veterans.
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. On 13 June 2020, the Veterans ARG will host its 7th Annual Honoring Our Heroes 5K. Registration begins at 0730, and the 5K begins at 0900.
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.
