BENEFITING: Veteran Empowerment Through Motorsports Inc
EVENT DATE: Oct 24, 2013
VETM’s two-wheel motorsports program competes in the WERA National Endurance Series. Program participants are embedded into the team and given active participation as crew members. These crew members perform an array of tasks, from physical / mechanical work to speaking to the general public and media. VETM provides support as veterans work through any handicaps or disabilities as a crew member of the team. Being a crew member allows veterans to overcome or work through their handicaps and work with their peers in a team setting. Five veterans are assigned to each motorcycle. It is anticipated that combat veterans can participate in several of the 1-day events, usually held on the weekends. The crew is provided training and direction by TOR-VETM's assigned crew chief and support staff.
