Our officers and board members have come up with so many great ideas to help make our initiatives to aid veterans and others a reality and there will be many more on the way soon!
Roberto Juarez and Leah Goldman have already completed The Boston Marathon on behalf of our foundation (2021 and 2022, respectively). In April of 2023, Theo Kamperides (the son of our board member Billy Kamperides) will be running Boston for us. Adam Carey will be doing the 26.2 miles in 2024 and USMC veteran Brian C. will be doing the same in 2025! Then, in 2026, a yet-to-be-determined runner will accept the tremendous challenge that is The Boston Marathon on behalf of our friends at the Acadiana Veteran Alliance!
We've released a song and music video that is a call to action to end homelessness. "The Answer is Me" was sung by Jessica Mixon and Gianna DiBono. It is available now for purchase on iTunes and the video, created by Sammie Gaynor, is on YouTube.
We are also producing a quarterly poetry journal with original submissions from veterans and other poets.
Thank you, in advance, for supporting these efforts. They will all help fund our plans for Louisiana and beyond.
