We aim to create grassroots fundraising efforts that will fund programs in their local area and support their local veterans to show appreciation for the sacrifices they have made to this great country.
Our first event September 20, 2013, we took 39 veterans and their guests on a fishing trip in Morehead City, NC. This year we expanded and had two, one was on May 23, 2014, and another one September 19, 2014, sponsored by the Elks Lodge 764 in New Burn. Here is the article write up by the Sun Journal. We will continue to host an event annually for veterans, thanks to our supporters and our new board member Joe Couch and volunteer Dick Mushet.
We have also provided funds to the Paralyzed Veterans Racing National Team in 2013, 2014 & 2015. OT4V adapted race cars at the Unser Racing near Denver, CO. We hope to expand with your dontaions and sponsorships to provide more opportunities for our veterans to show our appreciations for the sacrifices they have made for our country. We are here to create grassroots fundraising events that will fuel programs to help local veterans where the funds are raised so they can show them that our country does appreciate the sacrifices that have been made.
