About US

HERoes in Deed is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization inspired by the memory of our HERo, Army Lieutenant Colonel Jaimie E. Leonard, who was killed in Aghanistan on June 8, 2013. Jaimie's drive to make the world a better place is the force behind our mission. Our current initiatives include hosting an annual HERo Run in Warwick on Memorial Day weekend, and offering scholarships to deserving Warwick High School students. We are in the process of learning more about the needs of the community and local veterans and servicemembers to develop programs that will inspire and educate the community to recognize and serve with and for those who serve.
Honoring Jaimie...

In an article she wrote for her home town paper in Warwick, New York on Memorial Day 2010, Jaimie wrote …“…Remember those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for their country in war, but also honor those others who sacrifice in other ways to make this country great – law enforcement, firefighters, teachers, volunteers, etc. Please honor them in deed and not just giving thanks, parades, or planting flowers or flags on graves. Take measure of what have you done for your country and ask yourself if you could do more.”

Our Projects

Communities Serving Those Who Serve
HERo Run

Every year, with the help of our sponsors, we host a 5k and 10k race, as well as a kids fun run, in Warwick, NY, in memory of Jaimie. This is an opportunity for us to honor our local veterans as well as promote fitness for everyone.

Scholarships

Jaimie valued education and never stopped learning. HERoes in Deed provides scholarships each year to deserving Warwick High School students in Jaimie’s memory. Clicking on Jaimie’s photo above will take you to our Scholarships page where you can learn more.

NATURE PLAY AREA

In partnership with Warwick Historical Society, we are building a nature play area. A local veteran will serve as Project Manager and we are seeking veterans to volunteer on the site clean up and construction.
