THE STORY:

Dear friends and family,

On June 3, I will be running in the New York Spartan Race to raise funds for the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA). IAVA is doing critical work and I am motivated by the excitement of knowing that it will benefit such a worthy cause.

I am writing to ask you to consider sponsoring me for this event. I have set a goal of raising $500 to help improve the lives of veterans and their families. I would greatly appreciate your kind consideration by making a donation toward this goal. All donations are, of course, tax deductible.

As many of you know, this is a personal cause for me. I've served in both wars and I know by experience how difficult it could be to transition back into the civilian community without the resources and help that is needed to make this process an easy one. IAVA has provided invaluable services to the men and women who are returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, thank you for supporting their continued efforts to better the lives of those who have given so much to all of us.

Sincerely,

Fernando J. Colon
