Haywood,I know firsthand the need of our veterans for benefits outside the Department of Veterans Affairs. I have been a direct recipient of assistance through the Wounded Warrior Project's Independence Program over the last few years.
If you did not know Wounded Warrior Project, has been pivotal in my transition from spinal cord rehab back into life at home.
Wounded Warrior Project's assistance has helped to reduce my fiance's/caregiver stress, increase my independence, and has allowed me to live my life knowing that I have the ability to be independent even though I lost the use of my arms and legs.
I am going to be carrying a flag in leading a squad of volunteers ( hopefully you are one of them) for people living with paralysis at the event in Jacksonville November 10, 2018.
Carry Forward is a 5K walk/run/roll in Jacksonville, Florida, and I hope to get a squad together to assist me in raising at least $2500 to go towards helping myself and other warriors continue to receive the benefits that Wounded Warrior Project offers.
If you cannot be there for the run, there is also a link to donate to our squad in this email. You can also donate to me directly and I will make sure the money goes into the squad account. Hopefully we can raise a lot more than $2500.
Please utilize the links below to join my squad and be by my side on November 10 or click the donate button and support the squad with whatever you can provide. Anyone who donates will have their name placed on the flag we carry during the 5K race.
