ORGANIZER: Team R4V Incorporated
EVENT: Marine Corps Marathon 2015
EVENT DATE: Oct 25, 2015
I am running in my 19th Marine Corps Marathon and for the first time decided to fundraise for a charity. I chose Race For Veterans (R4V) because I like their stated mission and goals and they quietly take care of our veterans without any fanfare or fancy commercials. Please consider donating. I have a minimum that I must bring in for this cause but am focusing on my goal which, yes, is quite ambitious. It will certainly go to a great cause. Below is some insight to R4V.
Team R4V is a single resource for wounded veterans to receive support and assistance with their rehabilitation and reintegration through athletics, races and adaptive sports. Unlike other organizations, Team R4V provides assistance to wounded veterans from all branches of the military, supports all veterans, not just athletes, 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.
