For the third year in a row the Derby/Shelton AMVETS (American Veterans) Post 43 was the highest team fundraiser for the annual Shelton Sunset For The Warriors. The event is a fundraiser for Hope For The Warriors, a 501(c)3.
Hope For The Warriors provides comprehensive support programs for service members, veterans, and military families that are focused on transition, health and wellness, peer engagement, and connections to community resources. Lauren Cust, an AMVETS Post 43 member, has been the highest individual fundraiser for 2 of the past 3 years. Steve Frank, a past AMVETS Post 43 Commander, won first place in his age group.
Veterans and non-veterans are invited to join our team for next year’s race. Call Lauren Cust, team captain, (203) 733-2596 or Al Meadows(203) 9882792 to be added to the list of people to be contacted when we form next year’s AMVETS post 43’s Sunset Run For The Warriors team.
