Hey y'all! It's pretty simple, this charity is amazing (see their story below)! And anyone who knows me, knows that this is my perfect match! Supporting the wounded, ill and injured vets through athletics....one of my passions! I love the power of sport, it is life changing, it is why I started running and continue to run. And as so many of you know, I am lucky enough to spend my days surrounded by veterans at work. Not only have they kept, and to continue to keep, our country safe, but they also ensure that I, along with the rest of our crew, and our patients, make it home safely shift after shift. So this is why I am running the NYC marathon for this charity, to say thanks in the best way I know how! But I need your help to get there, more importantly this charity needs our help! Please consider donating, big or small, to help me get there and help our veterans!! 26.2 is dedicated to you (and them)!
Team Racing for Veterans (R4V) creates life-changing opportunities for wounded, ill and injured veterans by providing a single resource for veterans and service members to receive support and assistance with their rehabilitation and reintegration through athletics, races and adaptive sports. Team R4V provides funding for travel, lodging and entry fees to races, competitions and sports camps, sport-specific coaching, gym memberships, adaptive sports equipment, and much more.
By providing a one-stop shop for all wounded veterans and service members' athletic needs, Team R4V is able to make a substantial impact on the minds, bodies, and souls of our American Heroes!
