Andy v. Jon 1/2 Ironman
In honor of the 133rd Army-Navy football game to be played in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania this December, two of our supporters, both former military have thrown down the gauntlet to raise support for Warrior Rising in the time-honored tradition of the rivalry pitting America’s Elite Military Academies and service members against one another. Andy Riise, West Point graduate and career Army officer vs. Jon Macaskill, retired Navy SEAL are training to compete in a Half Ironman 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, and 13.1 mile run in Waco, TX this October 16 for the benefit of Warrior Rising. Support Warrior Rising and the entrepreneurs we serve by supporting Andy and Jon in their quest for Ironman supremacy. (links below)
What is Warrior Rising primer:
Founded in 2015, Warrior Rising is a non-profit started by Veterans, for Veterans. The Warrior Rising team has a singular goal: transform Veterans into Vetrepreneurs. We have achieved this through carefully selecting strategic partners in business, and leveraging a vast network of young professionals and successful entrepreneurs from a wide variety of backgrounds. The organization hosts a robust team of professionals, business owners, and experts in their fields.
Since 2015 Warrior Rising has grown from a regional to a national organization with a robust outreach assisting more than 3000 veterans annually. Warrior Rising has developed sophisticated programs that leverage remote learning, built a network of mentors and coaches, and has awarded grants that will result in creating one hundred veteran-owned businesses valued at more than $1 million by 2024. The Warrior Rising team listens to veterans and provides them exactly what they need. As opposed to some non-profits, Warrior Rising doesn’t give a veteran one good day… we give veterans the opportunity to earn their success and have one good life!
