This Sunday, July 13th VETMotorsports returns to four-wheel competition and travels to the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne, IN. The central-Ohio based non-profit will place post 9/11 injured combat veterans behind the wheel by partnering with the Sports Car Club of America. VETMotorsports mission is to provide this generation of wounded veterans a unique and powerful non-clinical outreach program in motor sports. VETMotorsports just recently worked with combat injured Marines at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in Colorado, and with Army and Marine veterans in Birmingham, AL. This is VETMotorsports' first northeast Indiana event with cars.
“Placing injured combat veterans behind the wheel is an effective part of our non-clinical outreach program. Our participants connect will fellow veterans and get peer-to-peer interaction. They are challenged mentally and physically, and the overall outcome is that they benefit from the experience. Our non-traditional approach gets veterans to work thought injures and re-acclimate themselves to civilian life. VETMotorsports comes off two successful outreach events in Colorado and Alabama, and we are looking forward to returning to Indiana this weekend. By embedding veterans into positive environment, VETMotorsports is attempting to provide direction and empowerment,” stated VETMotorsports Executive Director and Founder Peter Cline.
