BENEFITING: Pets for Patriots

EVENT DATE: Sep 13, 2015

Trent Marecz

THE STORY:

My name is Trent Marecz and I will be riding in the Giro Di San Diego 105 Mile Ride on 13 September. My goal is to finish this grueling ride and bring attention and hopefully donations to an organization called Pets For Patriots. After 23 years in the Marine Corps, I feel extremely fortunate and blessed to be able to participate in events like this. Most of us, whether we served on Active Duty, the Reserves, or had a family member in the military have been affected in some way by the numerous calls to serve our great country. Unfortunately, there are many veterans struggling with physical as well as mental wounds who think they are alone.

This past year was especially difficult with the passing of friends that couldn't continue the fight any longer after they returned from the their war overseas. This fundraiser is my way of expressing my gratitude and giving back to those brave men and women who served our country. Pets for Patriots rescues animals that are destined for euthanasia and pair them with a military veteran to provide support for each other. It was my observation that a Marine will always care for his / her fellow Marine and have his / her back even if that meant going to hell and back. It is my hope that providing a veteran with something to care for may be enough to keep him or her in the fight long enough so they can start to heal their wounds and realize there are other veterans just like them who are willing to help.

Pets for Patriots provides healing at both ends of the leash by helping United States military veterans adopt shelter dogs and cats most at risk of death or permanent homelessness. The nationally operating 501(c)(3) charity helps veterans from WWII through those currently in service, and saves the most vulnerable shelter animals.All donations go directly to the charity and there is no such thing as too big or too small. You can donate based on the amount of miles rode or make a flat donation. If you do not have the means to donate, I would greatly appreciate if you could share this link in order to get the word out. Please contact me if you have any questions or know somebody that could use some help. Semper Fi!
