Nov. 11th marked 100 years since “Armistice Day” (later deemed Veterans Day) was established in this great nation. To celebrate and honor our military veterans this Veterans Day, future NFL Hall of Famer Joe Thomas teamed up with Polaris Ranger to kick-off RANGER CountryHeroes Hunt – a fundraiser for veterans.
Thomas recently joined a group of disabled veterans, participating in a hunt at LEEK Hunting and Mountain Preserve – a non-profit organization that uses hunting, fishing, and outdoor recreation as a means of recovery for wounded heroes.
With the help of the RANGER Country Heroes Hunt campaign, the award-winning facility is raising awareness and money for the expansion of Dunham Hall, which provides lodging and conference rooms for wounded warriors and their families. Polaris donated the first $25,000 to the effort, along with three RANGER vehicles, one of which is retrofitted with hand paddles to assist disabled veterans and allow them to participate in activities on the property regardless of their current physical status.
RANGER Country Heroes Hunt has kicked-off today and will run through Nov. 30th to raise awareness for our countrys heroes. Additionally, anyone who donates to the non-profit will be entered for a chance to win a 2019 RANGER XP 1000.
