Help continue Racing 2 Stop PTSD / TBI in 2016!
Organized by: Joel Racing
Hello, My name is Joel Willman, I am a 5th Generation Military Serviceman, and 4th Generation race car driver that comes from a family that is inducted into the Indianapolis Hall of Fame, National Sprint Car & Open Wheel Hall of Fame, National Short Track Hall of Fame, and Badger Midget Hall of Fame. I'm a Veteran of the US ARMY National Guard as a Airborne Medic (non combat ). I'm a National Ambassador for Veterans, & Municipality Personnel that are suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury since 2009. I create awareness through many outdoor activities from Hunting, Fishing, Golf Outings, Corporate Outings, Horseback Riding, and mainly Auto Racing. My purpose for this fundraiser is to help me return to the track in 2016. On or off the track, I'm networking organizations to each other, as well as providing Veterans, and Municipality personnel opportunities to receive the therapy, employment, team atmosphere, self worthiness, as well as knowing they are not alone in this battle. Every lap I race is to raise money for the organizations that work with the veterans, military, firefighters, police officers, & emt's suffering from PTSD / TBI. So, it's not all about racing, it's about saving lives, slowing down the suicide rate of losing 22 Veterans, Military, and Municipality personnel a day battling a war many of us do not see. I've personally lost very close friends to PTSD/TBI. I've been also told I'm suffering from survivors guilt which is a form of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, which makes my desire & fight more intense. Please consider donation, as well contacting me to let me know who you are as I will be listing all the names of the people or companies that help make 2016 possible on the car, & banners, social media, and my website once the goal is met. Thank you for your valuable time reading my story. Joel Willman Willmanracing90@gmail.com @JwHollywood90 Www.joelwillmanracing.com Racing2stopptsdtbi90@gmail.com
