PLEASE SUPPORT
Karen supporting Operation Second Chance
Amount Raised
$1,725.00
Fundraising Goal $1,000.00

Dear Family and Friends,

Ugh....it's one of those fundraising pages. Please do not feel obligated to support me just because you are on my contact list.  I know people have their own favorite causes and can't support everything that comes along (and many of you supported me in the Alzheimer ride two years ago).   However, if providing aid to wounded warriors is a cause you choose to support, donating to Operation Second Chance is an easy way to help out (no riding on your part needed, haha). 

In the standard wording from Operation Second Chance:

Thank you for supporting my fundraising efforts for Ride Allegheny 2018!

On October 4th I'll begin this four-day, 310 mile bike ride from Pittsburgh, PA to Washington, DC - along with about 100 other riders who have committed to raising funds for Operation Second Chance.  For more than a decade OSC has been committed to providing aid and support for wounded, recovering and ill combat veterans as they transition back to active duty or civilian life.

Our goal this year is to continue Ride Allegheny's track record of success and raise $500,000!  With this money OSC can continue to provide items like advanced prosthetics so our veterans can run, swim, or even ride a bike again, to retrofitting homes to accommodate these veterans' new life realities of being wheelchair-bound or impaired otherwise.

Your generosity will have an immediate and substantial impact on those who have sacrificed so much for our nation!

By the way, OSC is committed to keeping overhead expenses low so that more of your money goes directly to the Cause you care about.  In fact, since 2005 OSC has averaged less than 10% in non-program related expenses (overhead, salaries, fundraising, etc.)!  This puts them in the upper echelon of efficiency for non-profits!

Thanks again for your support!
