BENEFITING: DISABLED SPORTS USA
EVENT DATE: Oct 09, 2016
On October 9, I am running the Army 10-miler! What better way to help wounded warriors and 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/
Your donation will help to cover all expenses for a wounded warrior to participate in adaptive sports, including individualized adaptive instruction, adaptive sports equipment, accessible transportation, lodging and meals.
Since 2003, more than 10,000 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.
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 50 winter and summer sports at more than 100 events each year. Warfighter Sports rebuilds lives through sports by improving self-confidence, promoting independence and uniting families through shared healthy activities.
Let's do this!
