Welcome to ^^firstname^^'s fundraising page

Friends-

As many of you know, I’m passionate about giving back to our nation’s service members – the fabulous few who fight to protect the freedom of our great country. Often times many of these inspiring individuals come home with wounds you can and can’t see, like a missing limb, combat stress, or depression. Because they’ve risked everything for us, I’m committed to raising awareness and funds for these wounded service members and their caregivers.

On Sunday, March 17, seven friends and I will participate in the Bataan Memorial Death March.  We will be hiking 26.2 miles in the high desert terrain of White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico with over 8500 other dedicated individuals.  The BMDM honors the heroic service members who defended the Philippine Islands during World War II, sacrificing their freedom, health, and in many cases, their lives. For your ready reference, here is the link to the BMDM website:

Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) has a big, audacious goal: to foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation’s history. I’m challenging myself to help WWP reach this vision, and I need your help.

WWP offers 20 holistic programs to wounded service members and their caregivers completely free of charge, and 100% of the funds raised through this event go directly to Wounded Warrior Project to help fuel these programs.

As some of you know, WWP was in the news in 2016 for excessive spending by two former executives.  New leadership, led by General(R) Mike Linnington, is committed to financial transparency and good stewardship.  That is why I am supporting this organization again, with a goal of raising at least $10,000.  In addition, WWP is an accredited charity with the Better Business Bureau and holds a GuideStar platinum rating.  If you're interested, here is the link to WWP's most recent financials:
