The ACSC Warrior Relay is a running and bicycle relay from Maxwell Air Force Base (Montgomery, AL) to MacDill Air Force Base (Tampa, FL). In total, 9 teams will cover 465 miles in 48 hours. The goal of the Warrior Relay is to gain support and raise awareness for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.
All of the participants have lost someone they know or love in combat. Hosting this event is the very least we can do to help the families of fallen friends or family.
We have two goals for our event:
Primary Goal: $100 for each mile we travel. 465 miles = $46,500.
Secondary Goal: DOUBLE DOWN! Including the drive home we are traveling 930 miles. How amazing would it be to raise $93,000 to help out these families!
Dedicate a mile for someone you know!
After you have donated, please E-mail ACSCAY13SOWF@yahoo.com and let us know who you would like to dedicate your mile to. Their name will be carried by a team member throughout the duration of the relay.
More about the Special Operations Warrior Foundation
These funds will directly support families of warriors who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Read below to learn more about how the Special Operations Warrior Foundation helps their families.
Created in 1980, Special Operations Warrior Foundation is devoted to providing a college education to every child who has lost a parent serving in the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps during an operational or training mission under the U.S. Special Operations Command. This includes over 70,000 military special operations and support personnel assigned to units throughout the United States and around the world.
The Warrior Foundation is currently committed to providing scholarship grants to more than 900 children of the approximately 800 Special Operations personnel who have given their lives for their country since 1980, including those who died fighting our nation's war against terrorism as part of "Operation Enduring Freedom" in Afghanistan and the Philippines as well as "Operation Iraqi Freedom."
Currently, 190 children of fallen special operations warriors have graduated from college.
Since 2005, the Special Operations Warrior Foundation has provided immediate $3,000 cash grants to personnel seriously wounded in the line of duty. Once notified of a special operations soldier, airman, sailor or Marine hospitalized with a severe injury, the SOWF immediately sends funds to the service member (or his/her designated recipient) so family members can immediately travel to be at their loved one's bedside. Since this program began in 2005, the Special Operations Warrior Foundation has provided over $1.2 million to wounded special operations personnel.
