BENEFITING: DISABLED SPORTS USA
EVENT DATE: Nov 15, 2015
On November 15, I am running the Brooklyn Marathon! What better way to motivate me while I train than to run it in support of Warfighter Sports, a great program that provides adaptive sports rehabilitation to our severely wounded warriors. http://www.warfightersports.org/
Warfighter Sports, a program of Disabled Sports USA, offers sports rehabilitation for severely wounded warriors in military hospitals and communities across the U.S. Since 1967, Disabled Sports USA has proudly served wounded warriors, including those injured in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, offering over 30 winter and summer sports at more than 100 events each year. Warfighter Sports rebuildslives through sports by improving self-confidence, promoting independence and uniting families through shared healthy activities.
Your donation help to cover all expenses for participation, including individualized adaptive instruction, adaptive sports equipment, transportation, lodging and meals for the warrior and a family member. Since 2003, more than 9,000 of the most severely wounded and their families have been served, including those with amputations, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, visual impairments, and significant nerve and muscle damage.
Please help motivate me by supporting wounded warriors that want to participate in sports through this great organization!
