 Veterans Overcoming Obstacles Letter of Intent

“Helping Veterans battle PTSD and prevent suicide through health and fitness”

Veteran’s Overcoming Obstacles (VO2) is a 501 (c)3 nonprofit in the state of Colorado with the tax ID number of 47-2158817 and entity identification number of 20141636563. Veterans Overcoming Obstacles Mission is to help veterans battle PTSD and prevent suicide through health and fitness. VO2 accomplishes this through support group meetings, yoga, CrossFit, and obstacle course racing. We are looking to rebuild the camaraderie veterans once had in service, while bridging the gap between veteran and civilian. VO2 is committed to helping veteran transition from service to being healthy, active, productive members of society.

VO2 has accomplished this mission through the creation of obstacle course racing teams, participation in local events, and by putting on their own events in which veterans and civilians can compete side by side. The events that VO2 has participated in within the past 2 years include:

Baylon Michael Meyer Run (5k/10k), Spartan Trifecta (The Spartan Sprint, Spartan Super, and Spartan Beast), Tough Mudder, Pueblo and Colorado Springs Big Dog Brag, Veterans Overcoming Obstacles Silkies and Singlets Deadlift Competition, Veterans Overcoming Obstacles Hero Workout “Whalen”, Memorial Day Murph, Chris Kyle Ruck March, Survival of the Fittest, Veterans Overcoming Obstacles Annual Golf Tournament, Student Veterans of America’s Baton Memorial March.

VO2’s current goals are to sponsor veterans to participate in obstacle course races (Tough Mudder, Spartan Sprint, and The Big Dog Brag) as well as various other fitness events, receive gym memberships, and attend yoga classes. Along with, continuously increasing attendance at weekly support group meetings and receiving testimonials that show the significant impact of VO2’s programs. In the next 3-5 years VO2 would like to increase its members, obtain its own facility, and start chapters nationally.

With the help from your generous contribution VO2 will fund a yoga program specifically designed for veterans, pay entry fees for veterans to participate in obstacle course races, various fitness events, and pay gym membership fees for veterans. With more funding VO2 can assist more veterans and impact more lives in the Pueblo community and beyond.

 

Thank you for your support. Semper Fi!
