Every year, hundreds of runners raise funds and awareness for the Homes For Our Troops (HFOT) mission at races throughout the country as a member of Team HFOT.
Simply put, HFOT builds and donates custom homes, free of charge, to service men and women who were severely wounded in combat. Coming home after these injuries is extremely difficult, but HFOT gives them a step up with a home designed specifically for their disability, wherever they desire to live in the country. In 2011, I had the honor to serve in Afghanistan with two Soldiers who were severely wounded while on patrol. They came home facing tall challenges and Homes for Our Troops, at no cost to the Soldiers, provided them a with home that was specifically adapted to assist them in their transition.
On August 15, 2021 I'm honored to be running the Falmouth Road Race for Team HFOT in an effort to raise money and awareness for this incredible charity (virtual participation due to COVID-19 safety measures). All donations made go directly to helping severely injured veterans from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq recover in homes that allow them to heal, rehabilitate, focus on their families, and rebuild their lives.
Lastly, if you want to go one step beyond and feel motivated enough to run a fundraising race of your own, their social media pages are a great resource of upcoming events!
Thank you! -Mike
HFOT Mission: To build and donate specially adapted custom homes nationwide for severely injured Post-9/11 Veterans, to enable them to rebuild their lives. Since its inception in 2004, nearly 90 cents out of every dollar spent has gone directly to our 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.
