We have a day for giving thanks. We have two days for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
Throughout the year, Endurance Nation uses our popular 4 Keys of Triathlon Execution talks as an opportunity to raise money for ReserveAid. The EN4Keys is a free talk, however, with a suggested donation to ReserveAid
What is Reserve Aid?
ReserveAid is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization that provides financial support to Reservists and National Guard members who are currently deployed in the Global War on Terror or who have recently returned from deployment. Reserve Aid does NOT provide loans, but helps service members and their families (on a one-time basis) by paying bills such as rent/mortgage, utilities, car insurance, telephone, etc.
Most recently, Reserve Aid is forging partnerships with organizations such as MediSend, providing opportunities for Reservists to obtain an education in the field of Biomedical Technology as well as organizations that provide housing for severely disabled veterans.
What is Team ReserveAid?
Team ReserveAid was formed when a passion for supporting our troops combined with a passion for triathlon.
Ultimately, Team ReserveAid was formed to further our love of sport and desire to help those who have given so much to their country. In addition to the original idea of competing in an Ironman to raise awareness and funds for our Troops in need, the Team ReserveAid concept has expanded to include other challenging athletic endeavors. Among these events are Marathons and Ultra-Marathons, Endurance Bike Races, and Mountain Climbing.
