BENEFITING: OPERATION OPPORTUNITY FOUNDATION

ORGANIZER: Colin

EVENT DATE: Jul 21, 2013

Kyle Veatch

THE STORY:

Kyle and Colin are taking Montauk by storm!

Two former captains of their college swim teams and bitter rivals, Kyle and Colin are now tri-ing their best to relive their former days of glory. 

Help the duo raise money as they swim (1/2 mi), bike (14 mi), and run (3.1mi) themselves  dizzy.

Funds will go to Operation Opportunity, a 501(c)(3) organization founded by Nick Rugoff and Jesse Reising and dedicated to helping veterans transition from combat to college.

 

More information about Operation Opportunity:

Operation Opportunity is a program run on Yale University’s campus that brings veterans from across the country to live on campus and engage in courses taught by top professors such as Pulitzer Prize winner and Operation Opportunity board member John Gaddis. Veterans participate in myriad discussion sections and work daily with private tutors. The two-week program just concluded and brought 24 veterans to Yale. Next year the program is expanding to Harvard University and University of Michigan.
