Mikes, SWIM, BIKE, RUN and Obstacles, for Veterans.
Organized by: Michael Urueta
After spending 9 years in the United States Marine Corps, I find myself wanting to keep myself healthy by running, swimming, biking and now competing in obstacle races. However, I know many of my fellow Veterans are having a difficult and challenging time making the transition from active duty life, to civilian life. Training for an Ironman, (Vineman, Windsor, CA.) July 30th, 2016. I decided to raise money for the Semper Fi Fund, knowing my Brothers & Sisters will be helped. In addition to an Ironman, I am also training for races throughout the year, such as, Spartan races; Beast, Super and the Sprint races. This year my goal is to earn my Trifecta and compete in the World Championships up in Lake Tahoe, CA. (This race is held at the Olympic Village). I am part of the Veterans Task force committee, for Tesla Motors, were putting together a 2nd Annual event, Tesla Motors Family Day & Fun Run. Last year we raised over $18,000.00 dollars, all proceeds went to supporting veterans. This year were raising money for the Semper Fi Fund and Got your 6 non-profit groups. In addition, I am hopeful to continue raising money with a team of athletes at Tesla Motors, where were joining forces to continue raising money for Veterans in need. Please assist our efforts here, to donate proceeds to The Semper Fi fund Throughout the year, I will be training & competing in various events; I seriously, began my training in Oct, 2015.
