Thank you for visiting my Team HFOT fundraising page for the 2018 Bank of America Chicago Marathon!
I have committed to raising as much money as possible (at least $1,200) in support of Homes For Our Troops (HFOT). I told them being from the multifamily industry that they should expect big things, so no pressure! HFOT is a 501(c)(3) organization that builds and donates specially adapted custom 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).
While there are many incredible causes to support, HFOT’s mission speaks to me for several reasons. My family has a long history of military service from my grandfather being at Pearl Harbor to my brother serving as a medic in the Navy. HFOT is also an incredibly efficient organization with 90 cents of every dollar going directly to their program services for Veterans. HFOT has received a Four Star rating from Charity Navigator, so you know your donation is making maximum impact!
Serving in the apartment industry, I’ve seen firsthand how critical a home is to a healthy and happy life. It’s not just a place to sleep and store your stuff. One of the greatest gifts we can give to these TRUE heroes is a safe & functional place to rebuild their lives.
It is a great honor to run for those who no longer can, who lost that ability fighting so that we all can. I appreciate your support in helping us give back to America’s heroes.
