We help veterans and their families to live the life they deserve after service


Hi, everyone! Thanks for taking time to visit my JustGiving page! 

As you may of heard, on January 12th, I will start a 10 day tour of military bases in the Middle-East and Europe as part of the Indy 500 Centennial Tour alongside racing legends Mario Andretti, Johnny Rutherford, Al Unser, Jr, Larry Foyt, Davey Hamilton and Sarah Fisher. In 2011, I will compete in my rookie season in the IZOD IndyCar Series, joining a legacy of names such as these.

Our mission for the tour is to meet and greet as many troops as possible on bases in Iraq, Turkey, England, Bahrain, and Germany, among others, to say, "Thank you for helping to keep us safe and free."

My personal mission is to raise at least $10,000 for two good causes - "Help for Heroes" and the "Wounded Warrior Project." The money raised will help rebuild the life of a soldier who has made a sacrifice so that we may walk free.

Money donated on this page will go to “Help for Heroes.” If you would prefer to donate money to the “Wounded Warrior Project,” please go to  

Once we meet our goal of $10,000 through both organizations, I will receive a military crew cut while on board a US aircraft carrier by a military barber. It will be filmed and broadcast for each of you to see.


Thank you and please be generous. It's for the soldiers.
