Haven From the Storm founder Leonard Wilf commented, "It's important to recognize the valiant contributions made by brave American soldiers, veterans who protect our country, and return home with PTS and TBI. This cause is in my heart and I suspect that's true for many Americans who care."
Participating charities include: One Mind for Research, American Red Cross; New York Presbyterian Hospital; Operation Finally Home, and the Wounded Warrior Project.
