RICHLAND, WA - This Saturday the 40th annual Columbia River Classic honoring veterans is happening in Richland. The 10-mile course starts at the submarine museum and goes south along the Columbia River. All of the proceeds raised for this years run are also benefiting Camp Patriot, a non-profit organization that takes disabled veterans on retreats and outdoor adventures.
This year, dutch Bros is also helping Camp Patriot by donating a portion of their Veteran's Day sales to Camp Patriot.

"To be able to combine the race, Veterans Day, and the proceeds going to Camp Patriot (it's great to) just roll it all together," says Janet Wilson, Camp Patriot.


"I don't know If I can put it into words helping people out that have gone out and fought for everything we hold near and dear to our hearts. It's the least we can do to bring together the community," Brad Barnes, Owner, Pasco Dutch Bros.

One dollar will be donated to camp Patriot for every drink sold by Dutch Bros all day today at all of the locations in the Tri-Cities and Sunnyside.

If you want to run this weekend you can still register at the race the day of starting at 8:30 a.m. For more information click here.
