BENEFITING: 1 Soldier 1 Dog 1 Team Inc
EVENT DATE: Jul 27, 2017
Chairman and Founder of 1 Soldier 1 Dog 1 Team, a 501c3, is Timothy Duffy, 58, New Jersey. Duffy is a FDNY retired firefighter, 9/11 First Responder, survivor and hero, Navy vet and noted dog trainer. Duffy will be riding cross country on his 2000 Harley-Davidson Super Glide Sport, the same motorcycle he rode on his way to the Twin Towers in the internationally famous photo captured on September 11, 2001. Duffy will begin the journey on July 27, 2017 in San Diego, California where he began his military career at Navy boot camp and ending Labor Day Weekend at an event in New York near Ground Zero, stopping in 17 cities this summer to raise awareness for PTSD and raise funds for 1S1D1T teams. 100% of funds raised on this cross country motorcycle ride will go directly to work with PTSD Soldiers and support canines rescued from shelters. 1S1D1T set this fundraising goal to work on outreach to Soldiers and First Responders and animal rescue shelters to bring more Soldiers and Dogs together as support teams. Why? 22 US Veterans commit suicide every day, according to a Veteran’s Administration study in USA Today (1/22/17 site, USA TODAY, Gregg Zoroya, 2/1/13). Timothy Duffy began focusing on building his organization on PTSD education, awareness and incorporating support canines rescued from shelters. He has combined his knowledge, education and passion for helping humans and shelter dogs, dedicating his life to creating teams serving one another, giving them both a chance at life. The effect of Post Traumatic Stress is being recognized not only with veterans returning from combat zones and first responders serving in the thin blue line, but also victims of crimes, of abuse and of domestic violence. 1S1D1T is to serve soldiers and survivors from all branches of military and first responders nationwide. Duffy is reaching out to these people, training shelter dogs to help build the team – saving soldiers and shelter dogs, one team at a time. In 1S1D1T's outreach, we will also be offering a support network to bring together rescue facilities and support trainers nationwide. The Ride Across America for PTSD and 1S1D1T will stop in 17 cities (see below for tentative schedule). Duffy will be sharing his stories and speaking about PTSD. Get Involved! This ride will be be shared via live feed on Facebook at "1 Soldier 1 Dog 1 Team" and photos shared via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and our website, www.1soldier1dog1team.org which is under construction to get prepared for the technology to support the ride.
