Just two months ago, Foundation 4 Heroes received an invite they had been waiting for, an opportunity to give back to our nation’s heroes; the Wounded Warriors.

It all started when the Foundation 4 Heroes’ President rode 40 miles through the NYC streets for charity back in May, he met a woman involved with the USO. She invited him and his team to come support a Wounded Warrior event in the future.
Finally the joint effort happened. The invitation was to travel to the USO Christmas Party for over 500 Wounded Warriors and their families.

Foundation 4 Heroes has already been at both of the last two Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team ( #wwast ) vs the NFL games in Bowie. They also have added supporting the Wounded Warriors and military veterans to their mission, so this opportunity was well-received by the team. And that’s an understatement!
To make this extra special they had an idea to bring superhero capes and masks for all of the children at the party, and so they did. Thousands of dollars purchased these items and then we asked the community to sponsor their trip to help make this happen.

They invited individuals and businesses to help bring smiles to the children of over 500 Wounded Warriors on Friday December 4th as the Foundation 4 Heroes traveled north and the community responded.

They were able to bring 1200 superhero capes and masks with them and then had some left over to visit Walter Reed National Military Hospital. Also there were Redskin greats and Comcast Reporters Brian Mitchell and Shawn Springs, as well as, female Thor to be, Julie Donaldson.

It wouldn’t be a Christmas Party without Santa, complete with sleigh, elves and presents. Santa even picked up some masks and capes for some special children he knew on his delivery route.

The Platinum Sponsor for this Wounded Warrior Holiday event was Raytheon. It was an honor to have such a prestigious company offer their support, but they are a huge supporter of the Wounded Warrior Project so it only made sense they would do so here.

Gold Sponsors were: ACE Upholstery, AdvantEdge,LLC., Arba Graphics/ Southern Maryland Wraps, Back At Your Best Chiropractic & PT, Exelon, Great American Insurance, International Process Solutions, James Hardie, Mike Batson Photography, Precise Systems, Raley, Watts & O’Neill and Tantaztic Tanning.
Silver Sponsors were: Amewas, Inc., Brickhouse Physiques LLC, Fitzmall (Fitzgerald Dodge, Chrysler and Jeep), Olympia Tanning, Tullis Worldwide Protection Inc. and Wyle.

Many other families have also donated to the cause and regardless of the size of the donation; all of the money raised goes toward helping F4Heroes inspire children and Wounded Warriors. They are a 100% volunteer nonprofit organization and your support is truly appreciated.

Thank you to everyone who has donated and those who are still planning on contributing to this worthy cause and this great organization. They have already been asked back to many future events.
