THANK YOU TO THE FOLLOWING SPONSORS FOR BEING FIRST!
BETTER HOMES AND GARDENS, THE GOODLIFE GROUP
We will be supporting 2 organizations: Moving Veteran's Forward & Guitars for Vets NE
Mission: Sleep on the steps of the State Capitol in a sleeping bag. Wake up and walk to 50+ miles Omaha to raise funds and awareness for Homeless Veterans & Veterans with Mental Health Challenges.
SIGN UP TO FUNDRAISE and SPREAD the WORD! Create a profile (creating a profile doesn’t obligate you to raise funds or walk! It just allows you to help us spread the word!)
*********WALKERS INFO PLEASE READ BELOW************
WALKERS: I’m calling on 50 Walkers to join me and help fundraise using this simple platform. Your goal is to raise $1,000. You will need to prepare. We are not allowing for relays due to logistics and safety. Must have a comfortable backpack, water bladder, and reflective gear, and a flashlight, or a runner's headlight. If you are a walker, please send an email or DM us and tell us you want to walk!
*You can not walk part of the walk, you must walk the entire way. You cannot 'jump in', must start from the beginning.
100% of funds will be donated. WE WILL NOT USE THEM FOR ANY COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH THIS EVENT
The event will be broadcast on social media. There will be a support vehicle following the entire way. My entire path will be tracked in real-time and monitored from a Command Center in Omaha.
My personal story: 10 Years in the Air Force. Patriotic. I love this country.
