Race For Team USO!

Rugged Maniac is a proud supporter of the USO because your donation goes to those who need it the most: troops serving in combat, their families, our wounded warriors and their families, and families of the fallen.

As a TEAM USO member, you can play a key role in the success of the USO’s mission.  The USO, a non-profit organization, offers all Americans a way to say THANK YOU to our troops and their families.  By supporting the USO, you are showing our men and women in uniform that you are grateful for all they do to keep this nation safe.

Rugged Maniac encourages all participants to raise money for the USO.  When you register for a Rugged Maniac event you will receive an email within 24 hours that includes a link to your TEAM USO personal fundraising page.

Rugged Maniac’s Commitment to Supporting the USO

Rugged Maniac hosts deployed troops and military veterans in every event and offer’s our nation heroes a free or discounted race entry.  It is Rugged Maniac’s goal to raise $1,000,000 to support the USO through donations and fundraising from our racers.  We know by supporting the USO we are supporting the men and women fighting for our freedom.

If each participant donates $5 we will reach our goal but imagine what we can do if each participant raises $500. Do your part! Ask your friends and family to donate to your race page today and race with a purpose.

Policy Unity Tour Chap. 37

For the third year in a row, the New York City Rugged Maniac is proud to partner with the Police Unity Tour Chapter 37 charity organization. Chapter 37 is named after the 37 Port Authority Police Officers who perished in the World Trade Center rescuing those in need. Not only does Chapter 37 help support the families of the fallen Police Officers in New York, but their primary goal is to raise awareness of the many Law Enforcement Officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty every year. Additionally, they raise funds for the National Law Enforcement Officer’s Memorial and Museum in Washington, DC. Support your local community and Law Enforcement Officers everywhere by donating to the Police Unity Tour Chapter 37.
