the Other Guys
Team The Other Guys is paired with K9 With A Mission. K9 With A Mission gives funds to organizations that pair service and support dogs with Veterans. Each organization benefiting from K9 With A Mission was established to provide veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress, anxiety, traumatic brain injuries, and physical disabilities with a highly-trained service dog free of charge. Many of the organizations train dogs from rescue organizations, shelters, animal control agencies, and humane societies. All of them are committed to giving back to our country’s veterans and improve their quality of life and restoring their independence. The goal of many of these charities is to create a mutually beneficial relationship between the dogs and the veterans. K9 With A Mission is a project of Swimming With A Mission, Inc.
Last year a donation was made to K9 Project and so far 7 service K9s have been purchased. 2 have already been placed with a Veteran and 5 more are currently in training to be placed with Veterans that have already been identified. The cost of training and pairing a dog with a Veteran is approximately $10000.00.
All money raised by this team will go directly to K9 With A Mission.
Swim With A Mission
The 4th Annual Swim With A Mission, an Open Water Swim Race and Festival was scheduled for Saturday, July 11th at Wellington State Park in Bristol NH. Unfortunately due to COVID-19 we have shifted our event to a Virtual Event. We would much rather have our live event and are disappointed about the change but we know that it is necessary at this point. Even in these tough times, we hope you will help us stay true to our mission to raise money to help Veterans and inspire others to help.
Virtual Events are open to everyone and will take place from July 1-31. Participants can choose to swim (1K, 5K or 10K), paddle (1K, 5K or 10K) or take on the SEAL Team NH Challenge. All participants are encouraged to raise funds that will go to our Veterans who need our help more than ever. Swimmers can also choose to swim more than once during the month of July and they will be able to record distances and times. Go to www.swimwithamission.org for more details.
Swimming With A Mission Inc.
Over the last 3 years, together we have raised over $2 million to honor and support local, regional and national veteran support organizations that provide critical services to our Veterans. These include supporting Veteran organizations that provide housing, take care of our homeless, support day to day services, provide service and support K-9’s, provide scholarships, provide jobs, create equine immersion programs and support art programs.
