Review for Hope for the Warriors, Springfield, VA, USA
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.
