Welcome to My Fundraising Page

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page for Team HFOT in the 2019 Bank of America Chicago Marathon! I have committed to raising funds and awareness for Homes For Our Troops, a 501(c)(3) organization that builds and donates specially adapted custom homes nationwide for severely injured post-9/11 Veterans, to enable them to rebuild their lives.

One of the greatest gifts we can give to these heroes is a safe & functional place to live. HFOT builds homes that provide freedom & independence for our most severely wounded veterans to live comfortably.

The donations you make to support me will help this important organization. You can be assured that your donation is put to good use because Charity Watch has awarded HFOT an A rating and has included us on its list of Top-Rated Military & Veterans Charities.

Together we can make a every mile count!
Thank you for your support!

Donated in memory of my friend, Randal, who received his HFOT home in 2012. I met him during the build as a volunteer and we were fast friends. He lost his battle in 2017. Best wishes, Bernard, as you get your Chicago on!
