In the time I have been working for HydroWorx therapy pools we have been involved in some great charity events, but the underwater marathon is one that means a lot to me. I work personally with the Seals team that is stationed in San Diego and fully understand how much these guys give up to let us live in a safe and free country. I also have had the honor to meet and talk with some special force soldiers that have been injured and using a HydroWorx pool at the Wounded Warriors facility in Camp Pendleton in SoCal.
HydroWorx has partnered with the Eagle Fund and Athletes performance to raise money to rehab our special forces soldiers and get them back out doing what they love to do… Safe Lives. On a average it costs 3 million dollars to train each one of these elite soldiers. The issue is that there is no money to properly rehab these elite soldiers so that they can return to duty once they are injured.
How can you help??? Please donate as much as you can. If you have a business and would like to sponsor a treadmill at the event, you and your co workers could enjoy the day with or counties elite soldiers, and run with them in the pool on the HydroWorx underwater treadmill. Please look on the website below on the join and contribute tab. You can also sponsor Matt Foss. I will be running a entire marathon on the underwater treadmill during this daylong event. I will wear a custom tee shirt with the logos of the top 26 contributors for each mile of my run. Please give anything you can to support our special forces soldiers.
Please look at the website for the first ever Underwater Marathon to be held at Troegs Brewery in Hershey, PA on September 9th, 2012 www.underwatermarathon.com.
