Posted by Michael W. Frame on Aug 16, 2017

Purple Heart Run Medford

On Thursday, July 27, the famous Purple Heart Run Ford F-150 Raptor pulled up to our dealership's doors, driven by a combat wounded and disabled veteran. 

This marked the start of a great day for an amazing cause. 

Crater Lake Ford was immensely honored to hold the Purple Heart Run event at our dealership. We want to extend a warm thank you to the Wounded Warriors Family Supportthe Military Order of the Purple Heart, and the amazing group of people who support this important cause. 

In this post, we take a look back on July 27, 2017, and commemorate the day of the Purple Heart Run in Medford.

The Purple Heart Run is sponsored by Wounded Warriors Family Support(WWFS) and the Military Order of the Purple Heart (MOPH), and features a mobility-equipped Ford truck that has been modified to suit combat-wounded veterans who were paralyzed or lost a leg or arm in the line of duty.

"Our belief is that, given the right vehicle for mobility, a combat-wounded veteran will have the freedom to live a productive and quality life with his or her family." MOPH

From coast to coast, sea to shining sea, the Purple Heart Run road trip travels far and wide to thank Americans for their appreciation and support of our nation's military families and the sacrifices they make.
