VETMotorsports concludes their collaboration with Columbus Love this Friday from 4 to 7 pm with their "Full Battle Rattle" tap room event at the Four String Brewing Company, located at 985 W 6th Ave, Columbus, Ohio. Since February 7th VETMotorsports, in conjunction with Columbus Love, has raised over $1600. VETmotorsports is a Columbus, Ohio based not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization which will embeds disabled veterans into motor sports activities. The non-clinical outreach program focuses on Afghanistan and Iraq veterans and assist veterans throughout the United States.
During the "Full Battle Rattle" VETMotorsports will auction off items, Columbus Love will be selling shirts and proceeds from beers purchased will benefit VETMotorsports. A short documentary film about veteran recovery was debuted on February 7th, filmed at the 2014 Indy Mile by a disabled veteran film crew. The film draws attention to the current Iraq/Afghanistan veteran suicide rate of 22 veterans per day and the positive effects of placing veterans into motorsports. The eight minute film is now posted in the web and can be viewed at this link: http://youtu.be/lUhQL-M4cX4
Columbus Love has been donating the majority of their t-shirt proceed sales to VETMotorsports as February's local community project. Every t-shirt sold by Columbus Love will go directly towards the funding VETMotorsports' non-clinical outreach programming. Those wishing to purchase a t-shirt to support VETMotorsports should visit www.columbuslove.co/shop or simply www.columbuslove.co through 3/6/15.
"VETMotorsports will wind up our month long community involvement and awareness campaign with Columbus Love at the 'Full Battle Rattle'. Our objective is to draw attention to the current Iraq/Afghanistan veteran suicide rate of 22 veterans per day and to create awareness for the largest living veteran population. A special thanks to the Four String Brewing Company for opening their doors to us this Friday. Stop on by, share a beverage with us and show your support," stated VETMotorsports CEO & Founder Peter Cline, who was the recent recipient of the 2015 American Motorcyclist Association's Hazel Kolb Award.
