Running for our Troops

Michael Roberto

Supporting Our Severely Injured Veterans

On November 20th, I'll be running the Rock 'n Roll Nashville Half Marathon - my third race since 2017 in support of Homes for Our Troops. HFOT is a 501(c)(3) organization that builds and donates specially adapted custom homes for severely injured post-9/11 veterans. Most of these veterans have sustained injuries including multiple limb amputations, partial or full paralysis, and/or severe traumatic brain injury.

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 so that our most severely injured veterans and their families can live comfortably.

Once they regain their freedom within the home, many recipients and their caregivers/spouses have the time to pursue an education or trade. The number of veterans who have obtained or are pursuing a degree or trade certification increased from 15 percent to 71 percent after receiving their specially adapted custom homes. Since they are able to rest and recover comfortably in their homes and their spouses/caregivers no longer have to worry about their safety, many home recipients feel empowered to return to the workforce. The number of veterans employed grew substantially after receiving their HFOT home.

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 Homes For Our Troops receives the highest possible rating of 4 stars from Charity Navigator and has an A rating with Charity Watch.

Thank you for your generous support!

Mike
