BENEFITING: BOB WOODRUFF FAMILY FOUNDATION INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 02, 2014
The Bob Woodruff Foundation (BWF).
This foundation raises money for injured combat veterans and their families as they return from Iraq and Afghanistan. After risking their lives, many of these soldiers return home with debilitating physical and mental injuries. These scars can lead to a cascade of problems including depression, unemployment, substance abuse, and even suicide. Our veterans need help finding counseling, jobs, and often something as simple as a new purpose in life. This is where the Bob Woodruff Foundation steps in. BWF takes a holistic approach to support our returning troops in every facet of their lives. BWF funds a variety of programs that focus on rehabilitation and recovery, education, employment, and increased quality of life. Their cause has led me to choose the Bob Woodruff Foundation as my sponsor for this year’s New York City marathon.
