RavenTek has raised over $74 thousand for No Boundaries Military, Inc. during the 6th annual Charity Gala to help rehabilitate combat wounded servicemen and women, the company announced on Friday.
“Each year we hear from the veterans who go on these trips with No Boundaries and how important this Program has been for them and their families. We give a little back to these guys who risked their lives for our freedoms” said Chairman of the Board, Frank Watson.
No Boundaries has been dedicated to promote veterans’ self-esteem, pride and a sense of accomplishment as they return to civilian life and are faced with challenges as they try to acclimate.
The charity has organized two 6-day trips a year for 10 veterans to participate in adaptive sports activities. These trips are all expenses paid for participating veterans. 100 percent of the money that RavenTek raised for No Boundaries will be used to send veterans on the trip.
Six wounded veterans attended RavenTek’s gala and shared their experiences from combat, rehab and how their lives have been changed from participating on a No Boundaries trip, including Major Jack Sottlemire, Army Sergeant Chris White, Army Sgt. Zach Herrick and Army Specialist Grady Bendel.
Mike Raymond co-founded No Boundaries with his wife Molly Raymond, who has suffered a traumatic brain injury. “Without your support, No Boundaries wouldn’t exist,” Mike Raymond said to the gala attendees. Over the last 5 years, RavenTek has helped raise more than $200,000 for No Boundaries, sending more than 130 wounded veterans on these life changing trips. Raymond went on to tell the crowd, “When we go on these trips, we become a family.”
