THE STORY:

Hi!

On October 25 I am running the 2015 Marine Corps Marathon with Team Racing for Veterans (Team R4V)!  I am raising funds and awareness for America’s veterans.  My fundraising goal is $1,000 and I really need your support to reach it.  Any contribution you can make is greatly appreciated!

Team R4V creates life-changing opportunities to veterans from all branches of the military by promoting awareness, supporting rehabilitation and empowering individuals to follow through on a path of healing with a sense of pride and accomplishment.  By taking a holistic approach to getting veterans “back in the game”, Team R4V is able to make a substantial impact on the physical, mental and emotional health of veterans and their families.  Team R4V offers programs and services for spouses/family members of veterans as well because if the family can be supported, the family can better support the veteran!

The Marine Corps Marathon has been a bucket list marathon for me since I began running marathons!  As the proud sister of retired Lt. Col. John Pryce, I am going to run this marathon for him as a way of thanking him for all that he has done for us!

I chose Team R4V because of its uniqueness as an organization.  I have several family members and friends that are currently serving or have served in all branches of the military.  Because this organization reaches out to veterans from all branches – it lets me support each one of them!! 

I also chose Team R4V because it supports all veterans, not just athletes.  I agree with their belief that the physical, mental and emotional benefits of regular exercise are undeniable.  They believe that sports teach wounded veterans to focus on their ability, not their disability, to believe in themselves and to overcome obstacles by facing new challenges head on, both in sports and in life. 

They provide services and programs on a national scope through:

  • Coaching/Mentoring
  • Funding for races/event entry fees
  • Funding travel to races/competition
  • Funding to attend sports camps
  • Grants for adaptive sports equipment
  • Funding for gym memberships & sports clubs
  • Funding for family gym memberships & sports clubs

Team R4V Incorporated is a not-for-profit organization under section 501©(3) of the IRS code.  Donations are tax-deductible to the maximum extent allowed by law.  You can learn more about Team R4V by visiting their website at http://www.teamr4v.org.
