Dick Wolverton, Director of Speedway Children's Charities Florida Chapter, proudly presents a $20,000.00 donation check to Colonel John Carney, President and CEO of the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.

The Special Operations Warrior Foundation was founded 29 years ago to provide support and assistance to the U. S. military's special operations community, which consists of Army Special Forces (Green Berets), the Army's 75th Ranger Regiment, the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment, Navy Small Boat Teams, Navy SEALs, Air Force Combat Controllers, Air Force rotary and fixed wing squadrons, and Marine Corps special operations personnel.

Headquartered in Tampa, Florida,  the Special Operations Warrior Foundation currently is providing educational funding for 117 children of deceased Special Operations personnel throughout the United States. The foundation was founded following the attempted hostage rescue mission in Iran.
