BENEFITING: The Bob Woodruff Foundation
ORGANIZER: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION
One Race - Ironman Maryland, September 20, 2014
One Cause - The Bob Woodruff Foundation (BWF)
One Goal - Raise $100 for every mile I race
I have begun my taper! The training is almost complete but my fundraising is not. I have 20 days to raise $14,060 for the Bob Woodruff Foundation. This is my challenge.
About 1.5 million deployed service members have returned; a million more are coming home. One of every 50 has sustained a physical combat injury and one in 5 suffers from post traumatic stress, traumatic brain injury, or depression. They face daily challenges and they deserve our support.
The Bob Woodruff Foundation focuses on Rehabilitation and Recovery, Education and Employment, and Quality of Life.
Today’s service members return with injuries that would have been fatal in earlier times. The BWF is funding programs that heal both the physical and hidden wounds of war.
A million heroes are on their way home. The BWF is working to make sure their education and employment transition – and the next chapter of their lives – is worthy of their sacrifice.
A purpose, a place to live, healthy family relationships, and an outlet for socialization. The BWF is working to ensure Injured veterans and their families have all of these for a good quality of life.
Please support my mission to complete Ironman Maryland and raise $14,060 by donating to the Bob Woodruff Foundation and support our military as they come home.
