In the spring of 2010, we produced a set of Spinervals Videos in Annapolis, Maryland (Spinervals Volumes 36, 37 and 38) featuring members of Team 4Mil. Team 4Mil is a group of active and retired military, representing each branch of the U.S. Armed Forces, racing in the RACE ACROSS AMERICA (RAAM) to raise awareness and money for the Wounded Warrior Project. A percentage of revenues generated from the sales of these videos are donated to their organization in support of this worthy cause. They recently won the Armed Forces Cup at the 2011 RAAM!
We are proud of this team and honored to support their efforts in helping our Wounded Warriors. For more information about the Spinervals videos starring these athletes, click HERE.
LETTER FROM TEAM 4MIL
Please pass on to your Spinervals and Lifesports team that, in large
part, because of the generous support of your company, Team 4Mil was
successful in completing our 2011 Mission. Spinervals revenue from
the Warrior Edition has helped our finances and our ability to bring
two wounded warriors on to the crew this year and additionally plan to
field a team of WW for 2012 in either a mixed or fully comprised team.
Please accept our sincere thanks on behalf of the entire Team 4Mil
family--2011 Mission Complete! Our team of military serviceman
competed with integrity and passion--we indeed helped define a "new
normal" for our wounded warriors. If you have the time, please check
out the brief photo essay (http://tinyurl.com/3rfdv4k) put together by
our media Team 4Mil member, Bruce Buckley.
Thank you for helping us "Keep the Warrior Spirit Alive!"
To our Team 4Mil Sponsors and Supporters,
Team 4Mil Wins the 2011 Race Across America (RAAM) Armed Forces Challenge Cup
Team 4Mil, an 8-person racing team, completed the 30th anniversary
RAAM, in a blazing time of 5 days 12 hours 5 minutes (22.6 mph), won
the 2011 Armed Forces Challenge Cup, and finished second overall.
The team of 8 racers and 21 crew, which included several wounded
veterans who accounted for four Purple Heart Medals, was successful in
returning the Armed Forces Cup to the United States from the United
Kingdom and is proud to have successfully competed in the largest and
most competitive field of racers ever assembled to compete in RAAM's
challenging and majestic 3000 mile course.
RAAM's Race Director, George Thomas proclaimed, ?Team 4Mil is the most
organized squad of racers this event has ever seen?, as lessons
learned from 2010 demonstrated that planning, training, and execution
are key to a successful completion of the world's most challenging
endurance race. By all accounts, Team 4Mil exceeded its objectives by
enhancing a strong support network of financial contributors and
product sponsors who align with the team's goals that support US Armed
Forces participation in RAAM and support rehabilitative activities for
our wounded veteran population. We recognize that without your
support, we could not operate as a 100% volunteer organization. Your
support helps us to empower our wounded veterans to "a new normal.?
Thank you for your contribution and we look forward to expanding the
team's activities in 2012.
In advance of the publication of our 2011 photo-journal, which is
anticipated by October 2011, please enjoy an introductory digital
