4000 miles in 62 days, across 11 states
We are a group of racing pigeon fanciers who have created this page because we want to make a difference. We are inspired by the work of Building Homes for Heroes and want to support them by raising money as part of our participation in Racing Pigeon Cross Country Relay Fund Raiser for Building Homes for Heroes.
Racing Pigeons were used during World War I and World War II to carry important messages from the front to military headquarters, and these messages saved 10’s of thousands of allied lives. Now again, we are enlisting our racing pigeons, to again carry the message of the needs of today’s veterans, who have special needs requiring special homes.
Our birds will participate in a cross country relay, between September 11th and November 11th (Veterans Day) flying nearly 4000 miles, in 62 days, and crossing 11 states, starting in Washington State and ending in Dayton Beach, Florida. Please help us help Building Homes for Heroes by giving whatever you can using the 'Donate' link below. The more people that know about Building Homes for Heroes, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing this page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
