Assemblyman Brian Curran, Lynbrook - 14th AD, is seeking the help of all of his constituents as he competes in the Town of Oyster Bay Triathlon for the benefit of the Wounded Warrior Project.
"The mission of the Wounded Warrior Project is to honor and empower wounded members of the military," Curran said. "The project raises awareness and enlists the public's aid for the needs of injured service members; helps injured servicemen and women aid and assist each other; and provides unique, direct programs and services to meet their needs."
This is the second triathlon run by Curran for the benefit of the Wounded Warrior Project. Last year, Curran raised $2,500 based upon pledges from constituents. The check was given to the Wounded Warriors at the Assemblyman’s Hall of Honor Ceremony, honoring local veterans.
The Town of Oyster Bay Triathlon will be held on Aug. 26 at Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park.
"These injured service members are heroes to whom we have a debt of honor and gratitude to repay," Curran said. "The Wounded Warrior Project takes a step toward making life for those who were injured serving this country just a little easier. It is my hope that I get strong community support for this unique fundraiser, which will again demonstrate our community's generosity and commitment to supporting injured veterans."
Those looking to contribute to this noble cause or attend the event are
