I'm very impressed with what O-USA is doing in partnership with a group representing wounded veterans. Three veterans with no previous orienteering experience have been recruited to the OUSA Trail O team and are now hard in training to represent the USA at the Worlds in Lithuania in July.
A lot of the vets expenses are being covered but not their travel. So a supporter has undertaken a fund raising campaign
through GOFundMe, looking to raise the needed $6,000. They are getting close.
A look at the page shows that the support from orienteers is impressive. Also three clubs have donated - Rochester, Western PA and Suncoast Orienteering. If six more clubs each chipped in $200 they would meet their goal. Come on clubs. Show us your hearts! Just follow the link above to access the campaign.
