BENEFITING: Fisher House Foundation, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Apr 29, 2017
Hello colleagues and friends of Beazer Homes!
On April 29th, Brian Beazer, Laura Frazzetta and I will be leading a contingent of Beazer employees participating in the Rock-n-Roll road race in Nashville. We'll each be tackling different distances - but we're aligned in raising funds for a great cause The Fisher House Foundation. This will be my first full marathon, and as anyone who has attempted a marathon can verify the training is rigorous! But I'll be surrounded by my colleagues and we'll be suffering for a great cause.
Fisher Houses provide military families housing close to a loved one during hospitalization for an illness, disease or injury. With over 20,000 Americans wounded in the ongoing Iraq and Afghanistan wars, and as many as 200,000 homeless veterans which account for one-third of the adult homeless population, veterans and military charities need to accomplish as much as they can with our donations.
While perhaps not well known, Fisher House is the highest rated military housing charity in the United States with an A+ rating from Charity Watch and 4 out of 4 stars from Charity Navigator. We pick our charitable partners carefully because we want to ensure our funds are put to good use.
Giving back to our communities is one of our highest corporate priorities - particularly where we can engage a large portion of our team in a fun and healthy event AND where we know that our efforts will make a difference.
Please consider supporting our cause.
