We are proud to highlight one of our Board Members, Steve Burgher, who participated in the Bomb Squad Fundraiser in Dallas, TX today to raise support for the Bird's Eye View Project and VIP!
The Bird's Eye View Project was set up because "many charities positively and profoundly impact the lives of Veterans and First-Responders, but they need a bigger platform and more funding to share their story and highlight the needs of those they serve. Our project will showcase a series of BIG events that will raise BIG awareness and funding for charity."
We are proud of Steve for his work in supporting Veterans and First Responders! Here is what he had to say about joining the fundraiser:
Why I joined the Bomb Squad:
It is a privilege to be a member of the "Bomb Squad", supporting the efforts of the Birds Eye View project to draw attention to the needs of Veterans and First-Responders, and the men and women who work to address those needs.
Simultaneously I am jumping to support my friend and medically retired Navy SEAL David Charbonnet and his work with VIP NeuroRehabilitation (VIP). David is the president of VIP. His work at VIP started initially as a patient after he sustained a spinal cord injury and subsequent paraplegia during a parachuting accident with his SEAL Team in 2011 in preparation for a deployment. VIP is a non-profit organization in San Diego, California, with a mission to provide top quality neuro rehabilitation to disabled military veterans, children, and to ALL who are in need.
The jump is symbolic of being "all in" for those who have given of themselves to defend and protect our freedoms and the security we enjoy as a nation and within our home communities.
