BENEFITING: New England Center and Home for Veterans
ORGANIZER: New England Center and Home for Veterans
EVENT: 2016 Boston Marathon
Dear Friends, Family and Supporters of Veterans,
It is an honor for me to run in the 2016 Boston Marathon as a way to raise money for the New England Center and Home for Veterans (NECHV). It is truly an amazing organization. The NECHV is a non-profit organization that provides care and service for our former military service men and women who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. These men and women can use your help and through your donation, you can support the work of NECHV which is dedicated to offering programs and services that enable success, reintegration, meaningful employment and independent living for these Veterans.
Over 350 Veterans reside at NECHV each night. Each year, NECHV serves over 100,000 resident meals. Over 1,000 Veterans complete NECHV vocational training programs each year. More than 400 Veterans find permanent homes through NECHV each year. Current NECHV Veteran programs include education, clinical support, employment and housing. They are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, every day of the year, serving this country’s Veterans.
Together, we can help NECHV continue their great work. I sincerely appreciate your willingness to help those who have served our country and who now need some help of their own.
I promise to train hard and run hard and will let each of you know how it goes. Thank you again for your support.
All the best, Mike
