* Charitable Beneficiaries - Tunnel to Tower Run/Walk
The run/walk will benefit three distinct organizations. One is the Steven Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation (see http://www.tunneltotowersrun.org/) . The Foundation is committed to building a proper house for all military quadruple amputees. They have coordinated an online registration activity (Actve.com) and national publicity campaign plus they are giving us support in the details of running an event like this. We have a web site on Active.com where interested people may register.
The second beneficiary is the USA Cares Organization http://www.usacares.org/ .which is a nationwide operation started out of Radcliff KY. Since 2003, USA Cares has responded to over 30,000 requests for assistance with more than $8,000,000 in direct support grants where money raised in a state stays in that state. They have saved over 1,400 mortgage foreclosures effecting over 2,850 children.
The third beneficiary is our local Chapter and we plan to use our funds to support wounded Warrior Activities at Ft Knox and our local Veterans programs in conjunction with the VA Medical facilities on Cooper Dr and Leestown Pike.
