BENEFITING: Homes for Our Troops
EVENT DATE: Oct 28, 2012
On Sunday, October 28th, 2012, I will be running in the Marine Corps Marathon to raise money for Homes for Our Troops.
Homes for Our Troops' mission is to build specially adapted homes for service members who have been severely injured in combat operations since September 11, 2001. All homes are built at no cost to the veteran through the generous support of individuals, foundations, and corporate contributors.
The veterans being assisted have life-altering injuries including loss of limbs, paralysis and traumatic brain injuries. These young men and women must now struggle with relearning skills that we all take for granted like walking, getting dressed, eating and talking. Because of their serious injuries, they have the need for specially adapted homes that will allow them to live barrier-free in a home designed specifically for them.
With your support, we can all make a positive impact on the lives of our veterans.
Please support me in my fundraising endeavor.
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR HELP, ENCOURAGEMENT AND SUPPORT!
