On October 13th, my spouse Kristin and I are working the Newport Half Marathon to help Properties for our Troops (HFOT). This group builds and donates specifically tailored customized properties nationwide for severely injured Submit-9/11 veterans, to allow them to rebuild their lives. We’re honored to be working to help these women and men who’ve sacrificed a lot to defend our nation and shield our freedom. Two years in the past, I ran the Twin Cities Marathon and raised over $7,000 for this terrific group. We hope to construct on that whole with this race effort.
Most of those veterans assisted by HFOT have sustained accidents together with a number of limb amputations, partial or full paralysis, and/or extreme traumatic mind damage (TBI). These properties restore a number of the freedom and independence our veterans sacrificed whereas defending our nation, and allow them to deal with their household, restoration, and rebuilding their lives.
