Partner with Dee-Ann Butler this Veteran’s Day 2022 as she runs 50 miles to raise funds for Salvage USA and the veterans they serve.

Here is Dee-Ann’s story and invitation to you…

Please join me in honoring The Fallen by helping to save and support the lives of service members, veterans, and Gold Star families.

Your support means a great deal to those that have served our country. Salvage USA is dedicated to helping those who have served our nation and the families of those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice. They provide services that assist its members in navigating daily challenges that stem from their time served in the military. Some are still serving, some have retired, and others have served in some manner. 

I retired from the US Navy after 22 years of service. My husband, of 29 years, retired from the US Navy after 26 years of service. I have two sons that currently serve in the US Navy. I have countless family members and friends that have served or are currently serving in each branch of the US Armed Forces. I designed this 50 Mile Run Fundraiser to assist in providing support to an organization that taught me skills in navigating my own daily challenges. It is my hope that more service members can obtain the resources they need to assist them in their own challenges.

Salvage USA’s mission is to salvage the lives of all servicemembers and provide them hope and alternatives to a better way of life. You can help them meet their vision with your donation. If a donation is not feasible for you currently, please consider becoming a Fundraiser. Just click the “Fundraiser or Donate” link on the Home page. Then click “Become a Fundraiser”. You will then set up your profile and share your link with all your family and friends. 

If you are in the Hampton Roads area and would like to join me on a portion or all of this run, please contact me at and I will provide more details. If you would like to create your own virtual run for any distance you choose, please feel free to do that and add the information to your donation page. There is no cost for you to run. I would love to know how your fundraising journey goes!

Thank you for your support! Thank you for Saving Lives!
