I decided to volunteer to raise money for this notable cause and represent them in the 2012 NYC ING Marathon. As soon as I received my first email from our race sponsor (Sarah Wilkens), everything has been running smoothly. The charity website is simple and easy to navigate. The ability to send bulk emails with their templates for donation requests is great and the tracking metrics are even better. Sarah has been a great sponsor answering all of my questions and keeping all the volunteers informed and motivated. I hope to meet some of them at one of the training sessions or races before the marathon.

Last year I was introducted to Hope for the Warriors . It was their mission mission statement and the support they provide our military families that I decided to volunteer. I enjoy volunteering with the group whether it is processing registration forms, introducting key members to my firm's Veterans group or participating in a run/walk. There is no doubt that Hope for the Warriors will continue to gain recognition and maturity. I look forward to working with the group in the future.

In 2011 I have had the opportunity to volunteer at several events where Hope for the Warriors sponsored warrior participation. It was a wonderful experience for me and I plan to continue as a volunteer as needed. Warrior lives are being enriched by this organization. They are finding ways to fill the gaps that might be otherwise overlooked by other government agencies and/or non-profit agencies.

Over the past three years I have had the pleasure of being able to be a volunteer for Hope for the Warriors. I have been witness to an organization that truly cares for the people it serves and does the most it can with the resources available to it. I have seen the staff go above and beyond what is expected of them on several occaisions. Including one time when after working twelve hours on a fundraising event and after everyone had gone home they drove a service member an hour out of their way just so he didn't have to sit alone waiting for a cab. You don't find that kind of dedication everyday and I think it is indicative of the values to which this organization aspires. Hope for the Warriors is everything you wish a charity to be. Which is why I continue to volunteer and support them.

For the last 3 years, I've had the pleasure of running for Hope for the Warriors in the ING NYC Marathon. This will be my second year volunteering for the Big Apple Run for the Warriors, taking place in New York City. What a wonderful organization for such a worthy cause. The people are a delight--some of the nicest I have ever met. I feel honored to be a part of this organization and look forward to taking part in many more events to come!

I volunteered for the first time for Hope for the Warriors at the Long Island 5K/10K Run. It was a great experience - all of the employees I met were very kind and focused on ensuring the event went off without a hitch (which it did). It was busy, and they were able to direct me to where they needed the most help. I was able to meet with some of the veterans that they are helping, which was great. Overall, I would highly recommend this charity to all: service members, volunteers and donors.

Hope for the Warriors is a unique organization whose commitment to meeting the needs of wounded service members, their families and families of the fallen is largely unparalleled. As a volunteer at dozens of events and a participant in a number of their programs, I have been able to witness the dedication and sincerity of the Hope for the Warriors staff. The success of its programs, its low administrative costs, and the number of repeat - volunteers, sponsors, and benefactors evinces an organization that has garnered the support of the general public by fulfilling its mission on a daily basis. I would not hesitate to donate my time or my money to Hope for the Warriors in the future – this is clearly a special organization.

I have volunteered for a few initiatives that Hope for the Warriors has spearheaded to bring assistance to severly injured service members returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. One specific initiative involved a quadruple amputee from Staten Island, Brendan Morocco. Hope for the Warriors teamed up with the Stephen Siller Foundation, the FDNY and a few other organizations to furnish a home for this dedicated hero. Hope for the Warriors worked tirelessly to leverage relationships that yielded donations of products and services to provide Brendan with an adapted environment that could aid in his recovery. H4W's efforts were truly incredible and executed with tremendous professionalism.

Hope For The Warriors was founded by fellow Marine wives that I knew personally. With this connection, I decided to support the organization by running the Marine Corps Marathon in 2008 as a member of Team Hope For The Warriors, raising funds to support the cause. As I finished the marathon that day, I celebrated alongside a young Marine who completed the race on a handcycle less than one year after the day he lost both legs to a roadside bomb. His courage and attitude made a huge impact on me and I committed myself to helping others through this organization. I ran on the MCM team twice more, volunteered with the group for another year and eventually became a Public Relations advisor for H4W. In all of that time and through all of those roles, H4W maintained an exemplary level of caring and commitment to America's wounded heroes that I continue to support to this day. Hope For The Warriors offers a wide range of programs designed to support these heroes from the first minute of their injury, through rehab and finally to hope beyond recovery. It's a mission that I'm proud to support.

The group needs to have more of an outreach on the West Coast.

I helped to create a sponsorship between the American Society of Anesthesiologists and H4W for a 5K charity fun run in San Diego (2010) and Chicago (2011). I was on the H4W Gala Committee for 2011. H4W inspires me to do more. The organization has an incredible dedicated staff. I feel blessed to be involved in their activities.
