If you want to get involved with helping Veterans, but can’t make a large commitment, just carve out some time Veteran’s Day weekend in Florida to join the 11th Warrior event! It is the title fundraiser for Companions for Heroes and a great way to actively support our veterans.
At 11th Warrior wounded veterans, professional athletes, and fitness enthusiasts will work out together on the world famous white sandy beaches of Clearwater’s Pier 60 Park and raise money for Companions For Heroes – an IRS 501c3 non-profit that works to save shelter dogs and cats by pairing them with American Heroes who are dealing with the stresses of their job.
With a new responsive website, focused on raising awareness and sponsorships, they are able to grow their event. Attendees, athletes, and vendors can also register right on the website.
About the Charities:
Companions for Heroes is a Virginia 501c3 that saves shelter/rescue dogs and cats in pairing them with active duty military, wounded veterans, law enforcement and first responders struggling with the effects of Post-Traumatic Stress, Depression and Anxiety. The Yellow Ribbon Fund is a 501c3 based out of Bethesda, MD providing a multitude of services to wounded service members and their families. Together, they will show how fitness and animal companionship can save lives.
