GORUCK Ascent

Help the Green Beret Foundation and Win!!!

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! I'm trying to raise $5,000 for the Green Beret Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to helping wounded soldiers from the US Army Special Forces. Their role puts them directly in harm's way, often for extended periods. Unfortunately, this results in the Green Berets having the highest number of wounded personnel of any of the US Special Operations Forces.

To help raise funds for the Green Beret Foundation I am traveling to Colorado to complete the GORUCK Ascent– a 100-hour unique experience where we will be climbing a number of peaks over 14,000 feet led by several active duty Special Forces members. That’s right– Green Berets.

The US Army Special Forces are a more evolved soldier. They are trained in warfare, yet educated in peace and compassion. It is this same elite leadership characteristic that I hope to continue to develop throughout my life, and share with those I connect with.

Here’s how you can help. Click “Donate” and give what you can. Amounts will vary and every donation helps me reach my mission to support those who risk their own lives for our safety.

And if donating wasn’t enough to satisfy your insatiable hunger for excitement…

CONTEST:

Grand Prize Package: (1) One Dimebag Darrell Signature electric guitar, (1) one signed photo of Zakk Wylde (Signed by Zakk), and one (1) signed copy of the book will be given to a “Donators” of $50 or more. That’s right, you get it all! For each $50 you will receive one drawing entry. (I’m not a lawyer, but you get the idea – $50 gets you one entry, $100 gets you two entries, and so on).

All “Donators” will be included in a drawing to win (1) one of the following prizes:

(5) Five signed prints of a Zakk Wylde photograph taken by Eric Hendrikx in Times Square, New York City on October 31, 2009 (approx 8” x 12”). The photo is black and white with some color enhancements, including an American Flag in the background. Signed by Zakk.

(5) Five signed copies of the forthcoming book Bringing Metal to the Children written by Zakk Wylde and myself. Signed by Zakk.

(1) BLS Hoodie

(5) BLS Tshirts

(1) Dime Distortion Pedal

(1) Dime Cry Baby Wah Pedal

(1) Seymour Duncan Dimebucker Pickup

(1) Case of DR "Dime" Signature Electric Guitar Strings

(1) Dimebag Darrell book including Dimevision DVD

(3) Dime magnets, (2) Dime pick boxes, (2) Dimebag / Pantera shirts

(1) Pantera CD Collection (7) CDs plus Rebel Meets Rebel CD

All winners will be selected by drawing and announced on September 15, 2011 (After the Ascent) at 5:00pm PST

All “Donators” will have their names mentioned in an upcoming feature article about the GORUCK Ascent experience in Revolt In Style magazine.

Good Luck and My Best Always,

Eric Hendrikx
