PHASE III CONSTRUCTION

The Purpose of this Race

Dedicated on 11-11-11 at 11 a.m., the Johnson City-Washington County Veterans’ Memorial is a living tribute that honors the past, present, and future military service and sacrifice of the men and women who have and will continue to bear the cost of our freedom.

We are pleased to announce that a continuous demand for inscriptions on the concentric rows of black granite panels for those veterans who were fortunate enough to serve and return home will soon require the construction of Phase III.  An integral part of the original design, this phase will address the outer ring of black granite panels of the Veterans’ Memorial and will consist of a dozen 4′ x 8′ panels and make room for another 1,248 inscriptions.

The estimated cost of Phase III ranges from $155,000 to $170,000. The JC/WC Veterans’ Memorial Foundation holds a 501(c)(3) (tax exempt) status, and its members serve as the advocate and governing body for the stewardship of the memorial as well as host the annual Memorial Day and Veterans Day ceremonies on site.

However, monetary support of the memorial is totally reliant upon donations from private individuals, businesses, and community sources.  Your generous gift will help to ensure our veterans have a space on the granite panels where their names and branches of service can be perpetually displayed.

DONATIONS

All proceeds for this race will go to the Johnson City-Washington County Veterans’ Memorial Foundation to help with the costs of Phase III. However, this is not nearly enough. We will provide a way to donate at the race or you can mail in a donation to:

Johnson City-Washington County Veterans’ Memorial Foundation
PO Box 3594, Johnson City, TN 37602

We convey sincere appreciation on their behalf.
