Bridgeport, CT - Homes for the Brave invites everyone to support Veterans by participating in the 9th Annual Step Up for the Brave Challenge. Held on Saturday, August 26 at Total Mortgage Arena in Bridgeport, CT, this fitness challenge will raise critical funds for Connecticut’s Veterans experiencing homelessness.
