MORE Foundation is proud to announce that in the third quarter of 2017, the Foundation achieved a major milestone by delivering its 1,000th veterans’ medical transportation ride. In just under 3 years after launching its V-TAP program, MORE and its ride partner, Quality Transportation Services of Arizona, have enabled over 1,000 medical transportation rides – which bring veterans to and from necessary medical care and social services.
Thanks to the success of our Ride ‘N Raise Fundraiser in November of 2016, we were able to accelerate the number and pace of rides, which allowed us to achieve this milestone in under 3 years of operations. In addition to transporting veterans to medical appointments, our supporters have facilitated veterans and their spouses; in getting to and from hospice, a blind veteran in picking up his prescriptions from the pharmacy, and a homeless veteran in getting to and from a housing services program. Many of the veterans who utilize these services are disabled, confined to wheelchairs, confined to gurneys, and utilize oxygen therapy – all of which make it incredibly difficult to use traditional forms of transportation.
MORE Foundation wants to thank all of its generous supporters for allowing us to Keep Life in Motion® for all of the veterans who have served this great nation and benefited from this outstanding program.
