Run With the Warriors: The third annual McLean 5K Run With the Warriors starts at 8 a.m. Saturday at McLean Square, 6629 Old Dominion Drive. More than 1,000 people are expected to attend the run, which benefits the Wounded Warrior Transitional Housing at Vinson Hall. It's one of three annual events the Navy Marine Coast Guard Residence Foundation uses to raise funds for the program at Vinson Hall in McLean — and this year's combined goal is to raise more than $100,000 to renovate a second handicapped-accessible apartment and to subsidize the living expenses for injured troops already living there.
