Jay Ruggiero - 2016 WTM Fundraiser for K9s for Warriors
Organized by: Jay Ruggiero
As an active Tough Mudder, I was recently blessed by being sponsored for the 2016 World's Toughest Mudder by #TeamMudbeast. My personal event goal is to reach 10 laps, or 50 miles during the 24-hour event November 12th - 13th in Las Vegas, NV. This 50 miles will include roughly 9,000' of elevation change, over 180 obstacles, and extreme weather changes throughout the 24-hour event. Aside from my sponsorship, I will be 100% self-funded for my competition gear, supplements and travel, so I am NOT personally asking for anything through this fundraising campaign. Instead, I would like to use this visibility to raise money for an awesome charity that is close to my heart on a couple fronts. K9s for Warriors helps military Veterans suffering from PTSD by pairing them with a service animal, which is normally also a rescue dog. Additionally, having done extensive research, K9s for Warriors has very little overhead, and over 92% of donations go directly to the cause. That is why I am so passionate about helping this amazing cause. Please help this great charity by donating today! THANK YOU!
