Smoky Mountain Rally / Hope For The Warriors FAQ's

1. Does the money I donate go to you?

No, it goes directly to Hope For The Warriors via the fundraising site.

2. What's Hope For The Warriors all about?

Hope For The Warriors was founded by military wives in 2006 as they witnessed, firsthand, the effects of the war on service members and their families. Hope For The Warriors remains grounded in family values as the organization expands both the span of programs offered and the number of wounded, family members, and families of the fallen assisted.

The Mission of Hope For The Warriors is to enhance the quality of life for post-9/11 service members, their families, and families of the fallen who have sustained physical and psychological wounds in the line of duty. Hope For The Warriorsョ is dedicated to restoring a sense of self, restoring the family unit, and restoring hope for our service members and our military families.

3. Is Hope For The Warriors a legitimate charity?

Yes, they have been independently verified and reviewed by Charity Navigator

4. Who/what pays for your food/gas/hotel while on the rally?

Each team pays their own expenses out of their own pocket, each team is also required to make a minimum donation of $100 to Hope For The Warriors as part of the registration process.

5. Why are you doing it? / What's in it for you?

As an Air Force veteran I知 always happy to do something that benefits the men, women and families who sacrifice so much when they or a loved one joins any branch of the United States military. I consider myself very fortunate to be in a position to be able to do something that can help others and to be able to do good things while having fun is an added plus.

6. So what all is involved, is this like a walk-a-thon?

This best way to describe the rally is it痴 a multi-state, multi-day scavenger hunt with 80 teams all looking for a set of challenging clues which are given out each morning. For the Smoky Mountain Rally we値l depart Tallahassee, FL to meet all the other teams at the starting location in Knoxville, TN. From Knoxville we値l make our way to Hendersonville, NC then Athens, GA and finally on the third day we値l arrive at our destination in Savannah, GA.

7. So, you're just driving?

No, Rally North America has done an amazing job of planning and they have us visiting several checkpoints each day as well as several racing venues along the way. We'll have to find the checkpoints each day and get pictures of the driver & navigator then make our way to the next checkpoint.

8. Are you doing it alone?

No, I値l have a navigator with me who will need to be able to decipher the clues and get me pointed in the right direction.

9. Who's behind all of this?

It's an organization called Rally North America, this is their 6th year raising money for a different deserving charity. The teams of Rally North America have raised well over $300,000 for various charities by way of these events and the very generous donations of friends, families and both local and national businesses.
