We are proud to have had three more of our dogs chosen for the K9s for Warriors program in Ponte Vedra. They will be trained as Service Dogs for Veterans. This is the amazing program that the local Barney’s Run for Warriors benefits every year. What an honor to be able to give back to those who served our country for our freedom! Bless this program and the USA! ~ May

Barney's Run for Warriors was created by Saint Paul's Episcopal Church to raise funds to provide service dogs for wounded warriors post 9/11. This year we added the Mike McComb Memorial Fun Run to our event which also includes the Jim Purks Memorial Marathon. Mike and Deacon Purks were both big supporters of Barney's Run and important members of our parish. We thank our many volunteers from Saint Paul's. We thank our sponsors including Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital and Flatlander Sports and so many others. And of course we thank the Marine Corps Logistics Base for their incredibile generosity hosting the event. Thanks to our runners! We will see you next year ! Thanks to Deerfield-Windsor students for their enthusiastic participation. Thanks to our Boy Scouts. A special thanks to Lois Hunkele and Anna Hendley, co-chairs and their team. We hope to be able to provide two more service dogs with the proceeds from this event. Thank you !
