Torrance, Calif. – Renewal by Andersen Los Angeles and San Francisco (RbA), a division of Andersen Corporation, has announced a partnership with 16-year old professional race car driver Max Fedler and Max Fedler Racing with the specific goal of raising $30,000 plus matching donations for K9s For Warriors. Online donations can be made at http://k9sforwarriors.donorpages.com/myevent/rbala/ between today and December 31, 2016. RbA executives have committed to matching $1 for every $1 donation up to the $30,000 goal. In addition, the RbA team and Max Fedler Racing will collaborate and deliver a special awareness and fund raising event in conjunction with Max’s Pirelli World Challenge race at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, October 6-9, 2016.
In 2016, K9s For Warriors celebrated their 5th year anniversary with a goal of serving 12 warriors every month by providing trained service canines to those suffering from post –traumatic stress disability, traumatic brain injury, and/or military sexual trauma. The dogs themselves are evaluated and trained rescue animals meaning two lives saved for each warrior. To date, more than 242 service dogs have graduated the program.
Renewal by Andersen, Los Angeles and San Francisco, are excited to share in the partnership with Max Fedler Racing to raise money and awareness for this important service. We believe K9s For Warriors is an outstanding organization which empowers our Nation’s warriors to return to civilian life with dignity and independence. Max Fedler and his team clearly share this passion. Together we believe we can help save lives one warrior and dog at time.
Max Fedler is the youngest professional race driver in the Pirelli World Challenge’s Touring Car series and is using his platform to create awareness for corporations and causes important to their people. As Max states, “My dad has worked extensively with organizations that support returning warriors including serving on Advisory Boards and as an experiential leader for warrior programs and surviving spouse programs. When RbA approached us about using our platform for K9s For Warriors, I jumped at the opportunity. We know a number of warriors who have been affected by PTSD and TBI. We’ve seen how service dogs can be life saving in these situations. We want to make sure the message is heard and people support this program”.
