Welcome to the Team Hurricane home page for the Electric/Walk Run 5K (3.1 miles) event, which will take place on Friday evening , September 27, 2013 at Floyd Bennett Field. We are running to raise money for those struggling with co-occurring disorders.
Good people sometimes make bad choices. Everyone deserves a second chance. We have spent a lifetime working with the underserved. We have made it our mission to help those in need lead productive lives. To accomplish our goal, we are creating a fund designed to provide assistance to NADAP clients. Team Hurricane will be raising funds to help folks in need. As the Captain of Team Hurricane, my father was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in 1979 after surviving two tours in Vietnam. My participation in this event is a tribute to my dad and everyone battling mental health disorders. For many people suffering from psychiatric issues, it’s a lonely battle without community support and access to resources. We hope that our participation will improve the lives of folks living in isolation and help them to get treatment. Please make a donation to assist our clients obtain the needed resources to move towards self sufficiency and independence.
