LTWF - Hockey Charity - 15 March

Bucks County Runner does Ultra-Marathons for Military Charity

Newtown – Newtown resident Jason Brady, a dedicated trail and ultramarathon runner, is set to run the Peak 100 Mile Snowshoe Race in Pittsfield, VT from Feb. 28 to March 1 in an effort to raise funds for the Army Ranger Lead the Way Fund, a military charity.

Since 2012, Brady, a former Army Ranger, has run five 100-mile ultramarathons and multiple 50-plus mile ultramarathons, raising over $6,000 for this charity.

“I love to challenge myself, especially in trail and ultramarathon running,” says Brady, a dedicated husband and father of two. “As a former Army Ranger myself, my time in the 1st Ranger Battalion was extremely rewarding, most of all because of the individuals I served with.

“Rangers and their families give so much and I feel strongly about the fantastic charitable work that the Army Ranger Lead the Way Fund does. The organization really stepped up during the government shutdown for Ranger families that did not receive death benefits and other services during that time. They are unique because they assist active and wounded U.S. Army Rangers and their families with recovery, health, wellness and other programs where government funding falls short.”

Army Ranger Lead The Way Fund, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization established to raise funds in support of disabled U.S. Army Rangers and the families of Rangers who have died, have been injured or are currently serving in harm’s way around the world. Army Ranger Lead The Way Fund, Inc. will provide spouses and children of deceased, disabled or active duty Rangers with assistance for health and wellness programs and other services determined to be vital to the family’s well-being, beyond what the government can offer.

To contribute, visit Brady’s fundraising page HERE.

All donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law and contributors will receive a letter acknowledging their donation from the Ranger Lead the Way Fund, Inc.

Brady’s tentative upcoming race schedule includes:

Feb. 28 – March 1: Peak 100 Mile Snowshoe (Pittsfield, VT)

Aug. 16-17: Eastern States 100 Mile (Waterville, PA)

Shootout for Soldiers

The Shootout for Soldiers is a 24-hour lacrosse game benefiting wounded American military members that will take place in Baltimore on June 19th and 20th at the McDonogh School and will also expand to Long Island on July 24th and 25th at the Field of Dreams Park. The event seeks to educate the communities about the challenges facing our veterans, engaging them with local service members while rallying to support organizations that are helping our nation’s heroes.

When a participating Lacrosse Team in the Shootout chooses Army Ranger Lead The Way Fund as it’s beneficiary for the event, funds will be directed towards our Wounded Ranger Recovery Program which includes helping build homes for severely wounded Rangers like Sergeant First Class Cory Remsburg, and others, as well as helping aide them and their families throughout their recovery process.

HELP US HELP THEM by encouraging your teams to choose Army Lead The Way Fund as your beneficiary! With your support, we can continue to ensure that all of the needs of our Special Operations U.S. Army Rangers and their families are being met.
