SAN DIEGO - The 11th annual Shelter Island 5K 'Run for the Troops' is scheduled to be held Sunday. The race is expected to begin at 7:30 a.m.
It will begin near the Holiday Inn Bayside on North Harbor Drive and will finish at Humphrey's on Shelter Island.
Proceeds will be donated to the nonprofit group Homes for Our Troops, which builds specially adapted homes for service members who have been severely injured in combat operations since Sept. 11, 2001.
Sunday's event will raise funds for Army Sgt. Odin Ayala and Marine Cpl. Travis Green, two veterans who live in El Cajon. Both served numerous tours in Afghanistan and Iraq when they were injured.
Not only will the fundraiser support the building of brand new homes for Ayala and Greene, but CertaPro Painters of San Diego will also be donating the interior painting services for the homes.
