BENEFITING: Navy SEAL Foundation
EVENT DATE: May 18, 2013
On 18 May 2013, I am competing in IronMan Texas to raise money to honor the sacrifice of so many who have given so much, and support the families of those who gave all. The following organizations are top notch in supporting this effort and whom I hope to support as best I possibly can:
NAVY SEAL FOUNDATION: Established to serve U.S. Navy SEALs, Special Warfare Combatant-craft Crewmen, Naval Special Warfare (NSW) support personnel, and their families, the Navy SEAL Foundation offers critical support to Naval Special Warfare commands, active-duty personnel, their families and veterans of NSW. As the duration and frequency of training and operational deployments continue, and the stress on the families and operators grows, this important community requires support today more than ever. www.navysealfoundation.org
OPERATION REBOUND: Operation Rebound funds equipment, training and travel expenses that can help our injured troops and first responders to harness the healing power of sport – whether the goal is to win Paralympic gold or just run around the block.
TRAVIS MANION FOUNDATION: The Foundation’s Mission is to assist our nation’s veterans and the families of Fallen Heroes. They continue the service to community and country exemplified by these Fallen Heroes and veterans. In the spirit of the Fallen, we will foster strength of mind and body to create a generation of future leaders. www.travismanion.org
