BENEFITING: WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT

EVENT DATE: Aug 11, 2013

Jack Allen

THE STORY:

I am 16 years old and on August 11th I will begin a five day 54.31 mile hiking trip to ascend Mt. Whitney (14,495 feet), the highest peak in the lower 48 states. I have decided to add to this experience by raising money for something I care deeply about, the men and women who serve our country. I am asking family and friends to sponsor me on this climb in order to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.

My goal is to raise at least $1,449.50 for WWP, or 10 cents for each foot of Whitney's total elevation. I chose this number because it will help motivate me to put one foot in front of the other when the air gets thin and I think about turning back. 

With a mission to honor and empower Wounded Warriors, the WWP offers programs and services to warriors with every type of injury – from the physical to the invisible wounds of war. With advancements in battlefield medicine and body armor, an unprecedented percentage of service members are surviving severe wounds or injuries. Over 48,000 U.S. servicemen and women have been physically injured in the recent military conflicts.  In addition to the physical wounds, as many as 400,000 service members live with the invisible wounds of war including combat-related stress, major depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Another 320,000 have experienced a traumatic brain injury while on deployment.

Please support my Whitney climb by giving to the Wounded Warrior Project.

Thank you!

Jack
