Awesome charity/event. Totally transparent. Does soooo much good, for sooo many people. I travel 4.5 hours, every year to participate, and will continue to do so, until it's not needed (or my body gives out LOL)

I've done, the KIA Memorial Road March, five times, and plan on doing it again, this year. As the wife of a veteran, who's needed help, from time to time, giving back, and helping other veterans is near and dear to my heart. This is an awesome event! It's a competition, but the camaraderie is outstanding. We're competing, but no one hesitates to help each other out, and cheer other on, at the same time. We might be competing to beat each other to the finish line, but it's all about making sure we all get to the finish line, too. The help, and support they provide to veterans in need is, unfortunately needed, and gladly given. I will do this event, as long as my body will let me, or the aid to veterans is no longer needed.

I am a veteran and I have volunteered for the March each year. It is an inspiring and motivating event and it is always fun and always a challenge! Great location, many returning marchers and volunteers each year and always adding something new and looking for improvement from marchers and volunteers!

Have had the distinct privilege to be involved with KIA Memorial Roadmarch. The Total Involvement & extreme Dedication of SSM Jason Jaskula carrying out KIA's mission, has had a Positive impact on Veterans, their children, Gold Star Mom's and many others!!!! The Continued Remembrance (Toast to the Fallen) of ALL the WNY Soldiers we have lost in Iraq & Afghanistan is a Testament to Never Forget their Ultimate Sacrifice!!♡ Thank You K.I.A. and SSM Jaskula for your Heartfelt efforts to Remember those who have Given So Much - Our Veterans! Keep up the GREAT WORK!!!

I started as a Racer, then to a volunteer and now a sponsor. I have followed this organization since the beginning because of the message it sends. There are very few 501c3s that are truly non-profit, i can say this organization is. Not one person who helps KIA MARCH takes a paycheck, All proceeds go into the organization. Which helps gold star families, sending kids to camp or helping homeless veterans or veterans in need. This group has truly become a family and Im proud to be a member of it.

Outstanding organization where you can have fun, honor and remember those who have been KIA, support their families and veterans in need. As civilians I feel this is the least we can do for those who are willing to “sign the blank check” for our freedom and protection. I started out my first year volunteering, walked 3 KMR, the company I work for sponsors KMR and I plan to continue to do so. It’s a great way to be a part of something bigger than yourself and help good people in need.

Truly a great organization that allows families, friends to remember loved ones lost. The names on the 10k symbolize the sacrifice made. Its surreal, yet healing to be in the company of others who understand the meaning of what KIA & KMR truly mean. Jason goes above & beyond every year to ensure this event grows- and the contributions of donations reach those that are in need. Watching the organization grow ever since the beginning has been amazing. A sad experience has led to new relationships being formed. It's an honor to represent Dog Tags and participate in the roadmarch every year.
