BENEFITING: HOPE FOR THE WARRIORS
ORGANIZER: HOPE FOR THE WARRIORS
EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013
The mission of Hope for the Warriors is to enhance the quality of life for post-9/11 service members, their families, and families of the fallen who have sustained physical and psychological wounds in the line of duty. They are dedicated to restoring a sense of self, restoring the family unit, and restoring hope for our service members and our military families.
I am proud to say my family has served in all branches of the military in all major wars beginning with WWII up to and including current active duty members fighting the War on Terror. Their service has given me a deep appreciation for the sacrifices military members make for our country.
My father is a veteran of the United State Air Force and is currently employed as a Police Officer for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs working at the V.A. Hospital in Brooklyn, NY and sees on a daily basis the need to provide support to our returning veterans and their families, and this charity helps to fulfill that need.
I would be honored to have your support in helping to raise money for Hope for the Warriors while running the ING NYC Marathon in the greatest city in the world.
Thank you for your consideration, and to our active duty members and veterans - thank you for your service.
God Bless America.
