    Hello all,

    Not sure if any of you have heard about WFTW (Wheelers For The Wounded) a program that brings off-roading to wounded war veterans across our country. Several Toyota groups are helping stage some events in their home states (Including Colorado)

    Here is the program info: http://www.wheelersforthewounded.org/

    Here is the national forum about the event(s) http://wheelersforthewounded.org/forum/index.php

    Finally we in Colorado are having a meeting tomorrow Jan 31st in Denver. Any CO folks are welcome to join us!

    ******************
    In case you haven't read our "WFTW - Wheelers For The Wounded" thread - I wanted to post this thread to invite you to a planning meeting tomorrow, Sat Jan 31st at 2:00 at Eric's house near downtown Denver!
    This is a great chance to meet fellow wheelers and get involved helping us plan this event! We need all the help we can get!
    If you have questions post up here:

    I will of course be making some mollyfood poppers etc for the meeting. So please come if you can!
    ***********

    Get involved! :D

    Yeah Jason, the guy who started this is a GREAT guy. While he has been lucky in Iraq and has not had serious injuries, a lot of his buddies have not been as fortunate. And that is the reason this all started!
