I have joined Team Racing for Veterans (R4V) on their journey of giving back to America's heroes!
Why I Run I've registered for the Anthem Half-Marathon 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. 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 Anthem Half-Marathon to provide direct 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 warrior can say "I can run 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.
