Register for this friendly competition between all branches of the military to raise awareness in the Fight against Veteran Suicide.
Each day, our country loses 22 veterans to suicide; numbers that are substantially higher than the general population. The Rally Point AZ Navigator Program provides much needed services to our Veterans when they need it most. They work with Veterans and their families who are in crisis, suicidal, homeless, and unable to get the help they need. Rally Point AZ assists Veterans by helping them to access needed services and support, ensuring these services are received. Rally Point Navigators provide intervention and support in the home, in the community, and via telephone 24 hours/day, 365 days/year.

Simply by registering for the 2023 Battle of the Branches 5K Run / Walk Fundraiser, you will help the men and women who have served our country. Proceeds from this event support Rally Point Arizona Navigator Program who provide these services free of charge for Veterans and their families.
