BENEFITING: WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT

EVENT DATE: Jan 01, 2011

Kim Volk

THE STORY:

I am running 500 miles in 365 days to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project. Many of these miles will be run while I am serving in Afghanistan this year. My goal is to get $1 donated per every mile ran...but exceeding that would be great also! Please help me reach my goal!

http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org/

Wounded Warrior Project began when several individuals took small, inspired actions to help others in need.

One night while watching the evening news, a group of veterans and brothers were moved by the difficult stories of the first wounded service members returning home from Afghanistan and Iraq. They realized then and there that something needed to be done for these brave individuals beyond the brass bands and ticker tape parades.

The resulting objective was to provide tangible support for the wounded and help them on the road to healing, both physically and mentally. What had been initially viewed as a small contribution (compared with what the warriors had sacrificed while serving our country) has become WWP's signature program:"WWP backpacks delivered bedside to wounded warriors."

Wounded Warrior Project is a nonprofit organization.
