The mission of Give2Those is to step in and provide vital financial assistance and support when hardship, distress, and/or tragedy strikes an active duty member, veteran, first responder, or their family. In addition to providing financial assistance, Give2Those also focuses upon engaging citizens and communities in honoring and remembering the sacrifices made by service members, veterans, first responders, and their families.
Overall support is at the forefront. We believe that military members, first responders and their families should have the opportunity to avoid hardship and enjoy independence and dignity.
Give2Those was derived from the Stride and Ride Relay (Relay). Stride & Ride Relay occurs in October as a way to honor, remember and educate individuals about the importance of October 7, 2001, the day of the first deployment in the global war on terror and to keep alive the memories of all the individuals who lost their lives, not only on September 11, 2001, but in the subsequent years either due to 9/11 related illness, service related injuries, or the invisible wounds of war.
The brave response made by our military and first responders every single day is a reminder to Americans the invaluable service these courageous men and women provide to our communities, nation and the world, now it's our turn to Give2Those Who... Serve, Save, Protect and Sacrifice!
