The Drive for Veterans raises funds for wounded vets and their families.

| October 23, 2013

The Drive for Veterans, a cross-country fundraising event dedicated to providing support and care for wounded American veterans and their families, has departed San Diego for their final destination in The Villages, Fla.

Participants in the Drive for Veterans will be traveling coast-to-coast across the lower United States in zero-emission, low-speed electric vehicles to raise funds, support and awareness for wounded American veterans. Participants in the Drive for Veterans will also be educating communities about the benefits of electric vehicles and their relation to energy conservation, the environment and the economy.

“We’re really happy that the Drive for Veterans has begun,” says Todd Sauey, president of Columbia ParCar. “Everyone has been working day and night to get this whole thing put together and our drivers, coordinators and staff couldn’t be more excited. We’re looking forward to meeting people across the country, raising awareness for our wounded heroes and, hopefully, surpassing our goal of $500,000 in donations.”

All proceeds raised by the Drive for Veterans will be donated to the Semper Fi Fund/America’s Fund and the Fisher House Foundation. These two charities provide necessary resources to help wounded veterans and their families recover and build their futures.

The Drive for Veterans is being supported by motivational speaker and wounded Marine Corps veteran Lieutenant Colonel Justin Constantine (retired). Mr. Constantine was severely injured while serving in Iraq and now dedicates his time to helping promote the cause of wounded veterans across the country.
