Join Team Foster's Army Navy
Volunteer with Team Foster on June 3rd or June 4th at Citizens Bank Park for Ruff Ride Philadelphia! Ruff Ride is part festival, part competition, bringing together a fantastic community of companies, service organizations, and groups of friends to form teams to sponsor a stationary spin bike. The only event of its kind, Ruff Ride brings all the fun and energy you can handle for 24 hours. That's right 24 hours, volunteers are needed around the clock and we appreciate your support!
We are looking for committed volunteers to assist with set up, break down, check-in, and other various tasks!
THE TEAM FOSTER MISSION
NO HERO LEFT BEHIND: 20+ Veterans and service members lose the battle to suicide every day. Team Foster is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit dedicated to supporting injured and disabled Veterans. Despite the proven efficacy of service dogs, the U.S. military nor the VA, nor the government provide adequate support for service dogs for Veterans. While service dogs are vital tools in rehabilitation and recovery, they are also expensive and resource intensive. One service dog takes two years and more than $25,000 to properly trainer and partner with an injured Veteran. Team Foster is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit raising money to provide trained service dogs at no cost to local Veterans #NoHeroLeftBehind.
Team Foster honors the spirit and sacrifice of Captain Erick Foster who was killed while engaging enemy forces in 2007 in Iraq. Erick was a warrior, a leader, and an inspiration. He pushed himself and those around him to be better—to go a little farther, to give a little more. And that’s what Team Foster does. We go a little farther, give a little more to support the service men and women who kept us safe.
