welcome to StusRunning!
My name is Stu, I am a Ex British Soldier had had the honour of serving along side US forces in places such as Iraq!
On April 15th 2017 I will attempt to run 1500 miles from San Diego to Seattle.
I aim to complete this distance in just 45-50 days... Completely unsupported!
I am doing this mammoth challenge to raise as much money as I can for HFOT and believe the sheer distance I am running is worthy of a sponsor!!! Please read on to find out more about his amazing charity and what it does for American troops!
Thank you for your support
To build mortgage-free, specially adapted homes nationwide for severely injured Veterans Post-9/11, to enable them to rebuild their lives.
Homes for Our Troops (HFOT) is a privately funded 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization building specially adapted, mortgage-free homes nationwide for the most severely injured Veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan. Most of these Veterans have sustained injuries including multiple limb amputations, partial or full paralysis, and/or severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). These homes restore some of the freedom and independence our Veterans sacrificed while defending our country, and enable them to focus on their family, recovery, and rebuilding their lives.
Since its inception in 2004, nearly 90 cents of every dollar donated to Homes for Our Troops has gone directly to their program services for Veterans. HFOT builds these homes where the Veteran chooses to live, and continues its relationship with the Veterans after home delivery to assist them with rebuilding their lives.
Please join me in my efforts to support this wonderful organization!
