I have joined Lincoln Park CrossFit on their journey of giving back to America's heroes!
We are competing in the 5-week Open Competition because we want to do something for the men and women who have made such incredible sacrifices so that we may live free - and because we want to do everything to assist in their rehabilitation and reintegration. Since October 2001, over two million U.S. troops have deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. The men and women serving in Iraq and Afghanistan are returning to their loved ones forever changed. Why Team R4V Team R4V fosters a commitment to veterans by promoting awareness, supporting rehabilitation, and empowering individuals to follow through on a path of healing with a sense of pride and accomplishment. The organization is committed to the rehabilitation of United States veterans, standing beside them when other services are no longer offered. Why You Should Support Me Team R4V will use funds collected from the Open Competition fundraiser to provide direct support for America's heroes. Because we can give back to wounded warriors by simply competing in a sport we love, because we have chosen to help hundreds of veterans through a contribution to Team R4V, we are now getting closer to the hour when a wounded warrior can say "I can live again!" Any amount, great or small, helps to make a difference in the lives of the U.S. service members that have sacrificed so much. We appreciate your support and look forward to letting you know how we do.
