Welcome!

Dianne Travers

If you know me, you already know about Homes For Our Troops because I am sure I have talked your ear off about my favorite charity... Did I write charity? no, no - it is not charity, it is our duty as Americans to look out for these guys and gals after all they have given for our freedom!

Meet Elliot and his darling fiancé, Jamie (pictured below). I had the privilege to meet them this week as they joined the HFOT family (8 new family members pictured above) - I am what we call Elliott and Jamie's Mission Moment Partner so I get to be involved in their build - so excited for this!!!!!

Elliott is a rock star in my eyes. During one of our conversations, he told me he did a marathon to raise money for a little girl who needed a prosthetic leg. Insurance wouldn't cover it because it was a blade that she could use to play basketball and deemed unnecessary. He got to somewhere around mile 19 and couldn't go further on his own prosthetic so he called his friend to bring him his wheelchair - not a hand cycle - a REGULAR wheel chair and he pushed himself to the finish line - for that little girl and what turned out to be her pink prosthetic! Elliot is now going to school for orthotics & prosthetics so he can help more kids.

He has inspired me and now it's time for me to get to training and fundraising to do a 5K on November 3rd at Disney - I know it is only a 5K but we all have to start somewhere...

90 cents of every dollar goes to building these homes and 6th year in a row to have a 4 star rating on charity navigator... crazy awesome! I hope you can help me make a every mile count!
Thank you for your support!
Dianne
