Dave Cummings, a 42-year-old New Hampshire resident, has found his charitable calling in foul shots, Tonic reported. He has vowed to make one million foul shots to raise money for veterans suffering from traumatic brain injuries and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
To make all the shots to reach his goal, Cummings estimates it will take him two hours a day for 1,000 days. He is documenting the effort on his Web site, Hoops For Heroes, where he hopes his huge commitment will draw awareness to veteran issues and some big fundraising dollars:
Every shot made shall serve as a reminder of the reverence
due those who have honored us with their selfless service to this country.
Every dollar raised shall serve to benefit those who now suffer for that sacrifice.
To all Veterans, though it will never be enough, this is our solemn thank you.
All the money Cummings raises will benefit the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, a New York-based nonprofit that provides support to severely wounded military personnel and veterans. At the time of print, Cummings had made 6487 Hoops and raised $360 toward charity.
