The UDT-SEAL Association is pleased to welcome athletes from National Football League to the SEAL Heritage Center on February 1, 2011 for a fundraiser event supporting the Member Life Assistance and Community Outreach programs at the SEAL Heritage Center, Joint Expeditionary Base, Little Creek, Virginia.
This event will bring the experiences of the NFL from those who lived it to the citizens and youth of Hampton Roads.
Event tickets are $50.00 and will include a facilitated question and answer forum, dinner and open interaction with the players.
Unable to attend, please consider making an individual or sponsor level donation to allow one or more high school athletes from lower income districts to have a chance to meet positive roll models who made their education and contributions to the community their priority while competing in professional sports.
Here’s an initial version of the Ride for Lance movie poster:

An excellent article on my buddy, Jimmy Graham:
U.S. Navy Seal Chief Jim Graham said he jumped at the chance to speak for a veterans lunch held at the Holiday Inn Wednesday by the Gallatin County Republican Woman.
Graham was part of a nationwide motorcycle ride undertaken by a group of Navy SEALs this summer. The month-long cross country trek honored SEAL Lance Vaccaro who was killed in a 2008 training exercise.
The Lance Vaccaro Memorial Ride swung through the area on June 22. GCRW sponsored a gathering for the men at Yellowstone Harley Davidson, which ended up being the largest event set up for the group during the entire trip.
“We just wanted to thank them,” Graham said. “They asked me if I could come and speak here and I said ‘absolutely.'”
The GCRW’s goal, he said, was for the riders not to spend a dollar while in the Bozeman area.
“And we didn’t. Hotels were donated, even the gas, food, everything. We were guests here, very well taken care of, then they sent us on our way up north to continue our ride,” he said.
About 130 people attended the veterans lunch. GCRW members said it is a nonpolitical event. Any veterans attending got to eat for free.
Graham currently lives in Helena with his wife and children.
