As outlined in the President’s Message, with the postponement of RUN XXXII, here is your opportunity to keep the Mission of the RUN going. Homes For Our Troops (HFOT) is an organization with many of the same goals and missions as we have. Their mission: TO BUILD AND DONATE SPECIALLY ADAPTED CUSTOM HOMES NATIONWIDE FOR SEVERELY INJURED POST-9/11 VETERANS, TO ENABLE THEM TO REBUILD THEIR LIVES.
Did you read that … they are building homes designed and built specifically with adaptations in mind of the severely injured Veterans. They are “Promoting healing among all Veterans and their families.” Isn’t that what we do while on the RUN?
According to our research, the cost to build one of these homes is based on what each severely injured Veteran needs. Our goal is to raise $100,000. How can we achieve this goal? The Board will match your donation … when you donate, we match … when we hit our goal, it will be doubled by another foundation!! BINGO – We just helped to build a home for a severely injured post-9/11 Veteran!
You can donate to this cause using several different methods:
- Donate through this Facebook Campaign.
- Mail a check to Ken Ward, Treasurer (address: 675 DEIS Drive, Unit N, Suite 266, Fairfield, OH, 45014 On memo line: HFOT)
- Click the donate button on our website (rftw.us)
Please check out HFOT’s website (www.hfotusa.org) for more information. There is also an interactive map to see Veterans approved by the program and in various phases of the build process, as well as, homes that have already been completed.
Let’s help build a home!!!
