17 Strong COVID-19 Relief
Hello, as many of you know, a lot is going on in the world today. It is a very unpredictable and scary time for most. A lot of people are hurting and struggling with the current conditions of the world. 17 Strong is one of the many non-profits that this pandemic is significantly affecting. Created by Ryan Teixeira, 17 Strong grants Victory Trips to young adults (18-40) who have battled a life-threatening illness and sends them on a trip of their choice. Unfortunately, Corona Virus has put all “Victory Trips” on hold. An enormous amount of time, planning, and money go into making those trips possible, so it is heartbreaking to see them canceled. We learned while having to cancel and postpone the already planned trips that COVID-19 is not covered by travel insurance. A considerable amount of money has been lost due to this fact. On top of that, we have an extensive list of people waiting to receive their own Victory Trip, which we are unable to accommodate at this time. We are at a complete standstill.
We have created this GoFundMe to help ensure that these trips can still happen. Though we know this time is hard for many people, any amount, big or small, is much appreciated. Thank you for supporting 17 Strong.
We hope you are all staying safe and healthy!
