EVENT DATE: Mar 16, 2014
I'm Noelle... and I'm on a mission to create life-changing opportunities for our country's wounded veterans.
Yes, it's true. I've signed up to do the NYC Half in March 2014. I've been out of the endurance running scene for quite sometime now, and I've decided it's time for a come-back. However, I'm not doing this one for myself, I'm doing it for others. I am using my "abled body" to support an amazing organization, Team "Racing for Veterans" - and I can't do it without your help.
We all know how empowering particpating in a sport, or completing event like a 5K or triathlon can be for people. Team R4V is a non-profit organization that creates opportunities for wounded veterans to participate in athletics, races, and adaptive sports as part of their rehabilitation. Team R4V supports our veteran's rehabilitation and reintegration, and empowers veterans to follow through on a path of healing with a sense of pride and accomplishment.
Team R4V provides assistance to disabled veterans from all branches of the military, supports all veterans, provides services/programs on a national scope, and most importantly, takes a holistic approach to rehabilitation and reintegration. Furthermore, Team R4V offers programs and services for spouses of veterans because if the family can be supported, the family can better support the veteran.
I need your help in being a part of making a substantial impact on the minds, bodies, and souls of our American Heroes. If you can only donate $1 - it's worth it. It's your ticket into being a part of a greater movement of passtionately taking care of others.
