USSOCOM WARRIOR CARE CONFERENCE

 

Great few days at USSOCOM Warrior Care conference in Orlando. It was terrific to see some of our wounded Rangers in action with their adaptive sports.

Adaptive sports are such an empowering force in helping our Rangers through their recovery and rehabilitation. 

 

Chase Stock Runs the Grindstone 100 for LTWF

On Friday, October 4, Chase Stock, an avid supporter of Army Ranger Lead The Way Fund and friend of Jimmy Regan, took to the Alleghany Mountain Range to run the Grindstone 100 (102 MILE trail race).  In what the race director called a race of ‘grit, endurance and a temporary loss of sanity,’ Chase finished the race in an unbelievable 23 hours and 58 minutes and finished 24 out of 300. Chase raised almost $20,000 for LTWF and has done everything he can to help us raise funds for our Rangers and their families. 

SSG (Ret.) Travis Dunn Headed to 2020 Invictus Games

Congratulations to one of our favorite Rangers SGT Travis Dunn who was selected to represent United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) in the 2020 Invictus games, an international adaptive sports event for wounded, injured and ill warriors. In typical Ranger fashion you have that never give up attitude and have never let your injuries get in your way of leading a happy and fulfilling life! We can’t wait to finally break ground on the perfect home for you, Kelley and Sadie soon!!

Premier Lacrosse League Jimmy Regan Teammate Award

We are so honored to have been a part of the inaugural season for the Premier Lacrosse League and even more humbled by having their ‘Teammate Award’ named after Jimmy Regan. Whether playing lacrosse at Chaminade High School, leading the Duke Men’s Lacrosse team to two ACC championships or serving our country as a Fire Team Leader with the elite Special Operations 75th Ranger Regiment, Jimmy was always the consummate team player and a friend to all.

“In a world where you can be anything, be kind”… that was Jimmy Regan.

Congratulations to Adam Ghitelman, Mark Glicini and John Ranagan who have all been nominated for this very special award.
