The group Feed Our Vets received a $1,000 check from the Boilermaker today.

The money was raised through sales of a commemorative t-shirt celebrating the Boilermaker Shadow Run that took place in Afghanistan.

Over 400 runners representing various military services took part in this year's Shadow Run.

Fed Our Vets Founder Richard Synek says it's great to see a community-based organization like the Boilermaker support local vets.
