Official Charity of the CMC Manchester City Marathon

Millennium Running is proud to have Veterans Count as the official charity of the CMC Manchester City Marathon.

Each registrant has an opportunity to support our Veterans by participating in the optional fundraising platform that is auto-created when you register online. In 2019, over $20,000 was raised for Veterans Count and we hope you can help us make a difference.

Veterans Count has the mission to provide critical and timely financial assistance and services when no other resource is available to veterans, service members, and their families, to ensure their dignity, health and overall well-being.

Our goal is that 90% of every net dollar raised for Veterans Count is spent to provide services and grow resources for NH veterans, service members, and their families.

In 2006, Veterans Count was developed in partnership with ESNH and the NH Dept. of Health and Human Services. The program provides critical resources to veterans of all eras and their families. Care Coordinators work with individuals and families to create a care plan toward self-sufficiency. Since ESNH launched the program, over 9,300 individuals have been served. Philanthropic dollars, totaling more than $2.6 million, have been distributed to provide financial support that may include food, home maintenance, housing, rent, fuel assistance, utilities, vehicle repair, gasoline, medical bills, and child care.
