About Horses for Heroes:
"Horses For Heroes - New Mexico, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. Cowboy Up! is a unique horsemanship, wellness and skill-set restructuring program based in Santa Fe, NM free to Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom - Afghanistan Veterans and active military (both men and women) who have sustained physical injuries or combat trauma (PTSD) during their time serving our country. From day one Veterans are hands on with our horses beginning with groundwork and progressing to riding, as well as participating in other aspects of ranch life, including working cattle and more importantly experiencing the camaraderie with cowboys who are Veterans themselves.
We are staffed entirely by volunteers and are privately funded by your donations. 100% of your contributions goes to keeping our Heroes horseback. We are totally independent of and not affiliated with any other Horses for Heroes program.
Our goal is to provide a unique environment and opportunity in which OIF and OEF Veterans can Recuperate, Recreate and Reintegrate into society and give them a new perspective so that they can reach their life goals.
Sharing our experience, our strengths and hopes, we work together creating a new path to peace and balance."
About Wrangler National Patriot:
Founded in 2009, the Wrangler® National Patriot is a year-round program developed to help raise funds to support American military veterans and their families and to serve as inspiration for all Americans to rally around each other in patriotism.
The program was seeded with a check for $50,000 donated by Wrangler in the name of cowboy legend and long-time friend of the Wrangler family, Jim Shoulders. The check was presented December 12, 2009 at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas, NV.
"We have a high level of pride and respect for the individuals serving in the U.S. military who show heroism every day in an effort to protect our country. This is our chance to give back to those veterans who have suffered injuries fighting for our country's safety and freedom, and to their families who have lost a loved one while on duty," said Phil McAdams, president, Wrangler Specialty Apparel. "It is a cause we believe will resonate with the western industry and rodeo community in particular, and one they will get behind with sincerity."
Wrangler will donate a portion of the proceeds of Wrangler National Patriot shirts to charities providing support to military veterans and their families. The Wrangler National Patriot shirts will be available at rodeos across the country as well as western specialty retailers nationwide that carry Wrangler Western Wear.
*Elk Grove Dodge will donate $25 for every new, unregistered car, truck and Jeep sold in May. Our goal for May is to exceed $5,000 donated to the Horses for Heroes program.
