I hope everyone is getting back to normal as we hopefully put the Covid pandemic behind us. My family and I feel very blessed for getting through 2020. We were thankful for having great friends and family to support each other.
As I reflect on my life, I think about the veterans that were struggling before the pandemic. I can’t image having PTSD while dealing with 2020 Covid struggles. Therefore, one of my goals this year is to step up my support for our veterans.
I am once again making the 310 mile bike journey from Pittsburgh to Washington DC to raise money for our veterans. The charity is Operation Second Chance. Many of veterans are struggling PTSD and financial hardship. They need our support more than ever. The suicide rate for the Veterans is very high. Over 20 veterans take their lives everyday.
I am asking for donations. The process is a simple. Just click the link on the right "Donate Now"
Lastly year, I raised over $33,000 for Operation Second Chance. This year I am raising my donation target to $50,000. Our team goal this year is to exceed over $650,000! Your generosity will have an immediate and substantial impact on those who have sacrificed so much for our nation.
