R3 Sponsors Scott Dayton EOD Memorial 5K

10.28.2017 | Events

R3 is proud to be a sponsor for the Scott Dayton EOD Memorial 5K on Saturday, November 18th, 2017 at Green Flash Brewery in Virginia Beach.

Senior Chief Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Technician Scott Dayton was a member of the Navy’s elite bomb squad. Scott was the first American killed in action while conducting combat operations in Syria on Thanksgiving Day, 2016. The immense contribution by Scott and the many brave EOD warriors that have given their lives before him in defense of our nation is a sacrifice we must never forget.

The EOD mission is to enable special operations around the globe by clearing the battlefield of explosive hazards within any environment. 

Proceeds from this race will go to benefit the EOD Warrior Foundation, an organization whose mission is to disarm the challenges of the EOD family by providing support and compassion to every individual they serve. Since its inception, they have supported over 150 combat injured EOD technicians, placed 326 names on the EOD Memorial Wall, provided 660 scholarships, and supported hundreds of families worldwide. Additionally, the foundation enables wounded warriors, their caregivers, and Gold Star families to attend therapeutic healing retreats. None of this is possible without the support from our communities.
