The R4V Rock ‘N’ Roll USA Team is on a mission to create life-changing opportunities for veterans!
Why I Run:
I have been running for a cause since 1999 very near and dear to my heart on behalf of my son Joshua (who has neurofibromatosis) My husband Eddie has ALWAYS been my biggest cheerleader and supporter. He is also a disabled veteran of the U.S. Army. I have seen firsthand the pain and anguish he has gone through over the years. Now is the time I wish to honor HIM and run on his behalf! I have researched different organizations and when I found Team R4V I knew it was the right "fit" for us.
I encourage all of our friends and family to join me in supporting a cause for our veterans to honor the men and women who presently serve or have served in the past.
I've registered for the Rock 'N' Roll USA Race because I want to do something for the men and women who have made such incredible sacrifices so that I may live free - and because I want to do everything to assist in their rehabilitation and reintegration.
Why Team Racing for Veterans?
Team R4V creates life-changing opportunities for wounded veterans by promoting awareness, supporting rehabilitation, and empowering individuals to follow through on a path of healing with a sense of pride and accomplishment. By taking a holistic approach to getting veterans “back in the game,” Team R4V is able to make a substantial impact on the physical, mental and emotional health of veterans and their families.
Why You Should Support Me
Team R4V will use funds collected from the Rock 'N' Roll USA Race to provide support for America's heroes. Because we can give back to wounded warriors by simply running in a race, 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 veteran 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. I appreciate your support and look forward to letting you know how I do.
