Rosland Capital participated in the New Directions for Veterans’ 4th Annual “Walk for Warriors” 5K this past Memorial Day with a team made up of more than 20 employees. Team Rosland Capital was the top fundraising group at the event, raising more than $10,000 in an effort to improve the quality of life of our nation’s veterans.
Held Monday, May 26 on the Veterans’ Affairs Campus in West Los Angeles, the 5K event raised money for New Directions for Veterans, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending veteran homelessness by offering services, such as transitional and permanent housing, individual and group therapy and job hunt assistance for service members post-deployment.
5K participant and Rosland Capital CEO Marin Aleksov was a proud supporter of the event. “Rosland Capital has always been a supporter of our veterans and is proud to assist in the efforts of New Directions,” Aleksov said. The Memorial Day walk and run was well received by participants and veterans alike,as attention focused on the true meaning of the day – honoring the sacrifice of our servicemen and women.
Today, there are more than 6,000 homeless veterans in the Los Angeles area alone. All donations from Rosland Capital and other event participants will directly benefit the efforts of New Directions to drastically decrease that number and allow our veterans to achieve the quality of life they deserve.
