The Charities

What these guys are doing is so cool. They saw the need for more support for wounded veterans when they came home from Iraq and Afghanistan, they wanted to avoid the homelessness and substance abuse that happened after the Vietnam war . Many of these men came home injured by IED's, insurgents weapons and other devices. Injuries that were both physical and mentally debilitating were treated medically and unaddressed afterwards, this is where Wounded Warrior's stepped in and fought for these men. They fought for their rights, for their humanity and for their respect. Wounded Warrior has held Level 1 certs for their athletes and provides a place for veterans to find succor in their times of need.

Athletes for a Cure is the fundraising and outreach arm of the Prostate Cancer Foundation. 1 in 6 men will get prostate cancer sometime in their life. 2 men in my family have been affected and I'm sure you may know many more in your own family. Athletes compete in triathlon's, marathons and crossfit workouts to raise money to help find a cure and viable solutions to end prostate cancer as well as to raise awareness about prostate cancer.

Check 'em both out and see what you think.
