Make a Difference! 
Support our Wounded Soldiers on Saturday, May 14th at Rose Tree Park in Media.


We at Destination Delco are proud of everyone who has stepped up over the past 8 years, to show our soldiers that we have their backs - but the fight is far from over!  

Whether you come to walk, run or be a cheerleader -- your presence will help us raise awareness of the plight of tens of thousands of returning soldiers who need help.  We are proud to work with Operation First Response, which, unlike many other organizations, delivers more than 97% of all funds raised directly to medical, emotional and financial support services for wounded veterans.


Lace up those sneakers for the Warrior's 5K Run -- 
and for the first time ever, see BLUE SKIES,
an all veterans group, parachute into the Park!
The Phillie Phanatic is a big Phan of our Soldiers!

This annual event has raised over $1.2 million -- and with your generosity, we can increase this total again!

Help Delco Honor Officer Jesse Hartnett

Delaware County District Attorney Jack Whelan will present Officer Jesse Hartnett an award recognizing his bravery on behalf of Delaware County Council.

Hartnett is a Philly police officer, and Delaware County native who was ambushed by a silent gunman who later said he acted in the name of Isis.

Remember:  

  • More than 97% of every dollar raised goes directly to services for the wounded
  • Contributions to this event have helped Operation First Response assist 7000 military personnel
  • And the event is made possible through the generosity of major companies, local businesses and thousands of donations of individual citizens who come to walk, run and donate to the cause.
