What's Happening at Veterans Outreach Center
For its 9th year, Pound the Ground challenges you through the terrain of Mendon Ponds Park — and every step you take supports the men, women, and families served by Veterans Outreach Center of Rochester. Choose from one of our USATF certified courses for 10K & 5K runners, or a 5K Walk along the course through the beautiful park grounds.
Theater of War casts nationally-recognized actors to perform a live reading of Sophocles’ Ajax, the ancient Greek play about the suicide of a great warrior. Over the past five years, this innovative public health project has served as a catalyst for facilitated town hall discussions about suicide, combat stress, alcohol and substance abuse, and the impact of war on families.
