SERKET Racing Teams Up with the Fisher House Foundation
February 14th, 2014
SERKET Racing is proud to report that they are joining forces with Fisher House Foundation to share in the mission of supporting our veterans and warfighters.
Fisher House Foundation is best known for a network of comfort homes where military and veterans’ families can stay at no cost while a loved one is receiving treatment. Since its inception in 1990, the foundation has served more than 200,000 military families.
“We are thrilled to be working with Fisher House Foundation,” SERKET Racing driver Mark Llano said. “They have provided military, veterans and their families with free lodging at military and Veteran Affairs medical centers across the country, scholarships and even plane tickets to see their loved ones over the years. Fisher House Foundation is a fantastic philanthropic partner to help us continue our mission at SERKET Racing of raising awareness and support for veterans and their families.”
For Ken Fisher, Chairman and CEO of Fisher House Foundation, supporting the SERKET mission was an easy decision. Similar to the Fisher House Foundation objective, last year SERKET Racing — with support from Wells Fargo Capital Finance and other partners — was able to donate three homes to veterans in need. After learning about the team’s pure passion for its brothers and sisters in the armed forces, Fisher could tell the foundation’s name would be in good hands.
“Fisher House Foundation is honored to partner with SERKET Racing,” said Fisher. “This partnership helps us share the importance of our mission — supporting military, veterans and their families. As the war ends this year in Afghanistan, supporting our troops will not. SERKET Racing is bringing to light the need to continue to support our nation’s heroes.”
