Andy Wirth Raising Money for Crowdrise to Support Navy Seals

 

Tragedy, often times is the beginning of a higher calling. When a traumatic injury occurs, there is no way to tell why it happened. Andy Wirth suffered a horrible skydiving accident a few years ago that almost severed his arm. He is an avid cyclist, and as a result of his injury, was unsure if he would ever fully recover. While in physical therapy, he met a few people that would make the reason for his injury all that much clearer.

They were Navy Seal veterans. Wounded in the line of service to our country, they too were trying to recover. Wirth realized the sacrifice these men had made for the sake of others, wanting nothing in return. Their injuries though, had caused them to need help. Their proud families also needed help. Bills, sadly only go away when they are paid. He made the decision then, to do what he could to help these great men of service. This is what was to come out of his accident. He decided to offer his support to raise money on behalf of the Navy Seals Foundation.

The foundations goal is to provide assistance and support to the service members and their families. Returning home from a war zone is hard enough as it is. Being injured as well is unthinkable, unless you have lived through the experience. By offering programs and aid, this foundation has transformed thousands of lives. This elite naval organization is deserving of its own entity to provide critical support services. The Navy Seal Foundation is built on this premise.

Andy Wirth is participating in the 2015 IRONMAN Lake Tahoe. He has assembled a team that included a retired member of the Navy Seals. Join him and crowdrise.com to give support to this effort. Your donation goes directly to help give service members, along with their families, the opportunity to live normal, healthy lives. Donate today.
