Benefiting The 4 Wheel 2 Heal Organization
4 Wheel To Heal Mission
We are a 501(c)3 tax exempt nonprofit organization that is committed to bringing wounded veterans to offroad events where they can camp, rock crawl, mud bog… etc. We want to provide them with the opportunity to get out of the daily grind, away from work, doctors, hospitals or wherever and bring them out into nature to hang out with folks who respect what they do, their service and their sacrifice, without babying.
These guys are amputees, have shrapnel and bullet wounds, TBI, PTSD, etc., but are regular folks with extraordinary stories. It’s nice to show that people appreciate what they’ve sacrificed, and that even with their wounds, are still accepted in society.
4 Wheel to Heal identifies opportunities to bring these veterans out and pays for any registration fees, meals, lodging and transportation. We pay for these things through public donations, business partnerships and merchandise sales. 100 percent of donations go directly to paying these costs. We use funds from merchandise sales to pay for administrative stuff like office supplies, our website, and things like that.
We are an all volunteer organization so there are no employees to pay or employment taxes to deal with. This keeps our overhead very low.
We also donate 10 percent of our merchandise sales to nonprofit organizations who help wounded warriors while they recover in the hospital.
We got our start in February 2012 (less than a year ago!) and have taken 14 wounded vets to 5 weekend-long events in Gore, VA. We attend several offroad shows with these guys and have a ton of events planned for 2013.
You can read more about some of these events, and get a better sense of who we are, from our website at www.4wheeltoheal.org, or www.4w2h.org, or by visiting us on facebook at www.facebook.com/4wheeltoheal.
