Team TAPS Army Ten-Miler Company Challenge


The Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) is a heartfelt national non-profit veteran's organization that reaches out to the families and loved ones who have been impacted by a death of a loved one in the U.S. Armed Forces.

This October, TAPS will be participating in the Army Ten-Miler. During the event, Team TAPS pays tribute to the sacrifices made by our men and women in service to America, while raising funds and creating awareness to support the TAPS mission. Many of our runners, including children, are survivors who utilize these events in their healing process.

We are inviting a few select companies the opportunity to join our team. As part of Team TAPS, your company would have the opportunity to recruit at least 10 runners to participate in this annual moving and memorable tribute to our nation's fallen heroes and support the families who are left behind.
