This is my 5th year riding in the Dougherty Valley/San Ramon Rotary Foundation and raising money for Sentinels of Freedom as part of V3 Hopfest. This year I’m doing it to honor my mother, Clara Hagarty, who was a WWII veteran with overseas experience and passed away earlier this year and had always sponsored me. The Sentinels of Freedom does fantastic work with severely wounded veterans and their families and I’m honored to help them again in 2018. Both of my Grandfathers were wounded in WWI and unfortunately did not have the type of programs available to them that vets do today. My father was a WWII Naval Aviator, I served in the Marines in the early 1970’s and my son did multiple overseas deployments with the Marines from 2012 to 2017. We know the sacrifices that wounded vets make.
Here is a video link to see some of the vets you’ll be helping:
This year General Dynamics Corporation has agreed to match donations up to $50,0000. By donating now you can double your efforts. This limited time offer has provided an amazing way to double the impact you can have on a Sentinel’s journey towards self-sufficiency. Simply mention ‘GDMS Matching’ when sending in your donation. It’s that easy! Your employer may also qualify for matching funds. You can give with any major credit card and it only takes 30 seconds. I appreciate it so very much.
Thank you for joining me!
