A group of combat veterans, including Wounded Warriors, is en route to NYC and the 9/11 Memorial. The vets are piloting personal watercraft 1,600 miles from Key West, Florida to the World Trade Center, to help raise money for charities supporting wounded warriors. It’s called the Never Quit Challenge, which is both its name and its spirit.
Never Quit Challenge teams are traveling around 250 miles a day along the Atlantic Ocean coast, stopping along the way for local fund-raisers and a dry night’s sleep. The trip is taking six days. They left Key West on Sept. 6, to arrive at the World Trade Center on Sept. 11.
Kawasaki Motors Corporation USA is sponsoring the vets, aboard Kawasaki Ultra LX JET SKI®.
More information on the Never Quit Challenge website, including how you can donate, and the names of the teams bio information about the members, such Team Extreme member Anthony Radetic, a Green Beret whose war wounds made him a paraplegic, but one who never quits.
Thanks to my friend Andy Newman in Florida, who alerted me about the Never Quit Challenge, and thanks always to all our uniformed service men and women.
