Aloha, I was born and raised in Hawaii. I am an active duty Soldier and serve as Captain in the U.S. Army. I am participating to honor my friends and brothers & sisters in arms that paid the ultimate price in the line of duty; and to help raise funds for a great cause. Please help my team and I to raise funds for the GallantFew charity.
Our team is participating in the 2015 RunRangerRun. We are pledging to walk, run and/or ride bicycles a combined total of 565 miles in the month of February (28 days). The funds we raise will go the GallantFew charity that assists Veterans and increases awareness for veteran issues surrounding the transition from active military service to civilian life.
Veterans continue to battle record high levels of unemployment, under-employment, homelessness and suicide. The most recent Department of Labor Statistics from May 2012 show Global War on Terror veterans are 40% more likely to be unemployed than a person who never served. The VA reports eighteen veterans take their own lives daily, and active duty suicides have averaged one per day this year – a rate unheard of before now.
We can make a difference! All donations are greatly appreciated.
Mahalo Nui Loa (thank you very much)
