Ryan Binkley CharityRyan Binkley, president and owner of Generational Equity, is putting his money and feet where they really matter—aiding our heroes in the armed forces. Generational Equity is one of the sponsors of Operation Homefront in the Marine Corps Marathon, which takes place in our nation’s capital on October 30, 2011. In addition to sponsoring this great cause, Binkley will be running in his fourth marathon.

In case you have not heard of this fine organization, Operation Homefront provides emergency financial and other assistance to the families of our service members and wounded warriors. In 2010, Operation Homefront met 167,348 needs for military families, including active duty, Guard members, and Reserve members from all branches of service. Since its inception, Operation Homefront has provided more than $92 million dollars of funding to programs that benefit military families.

The organization provides direct services to alleviate a military family’s or individual’s actual/complete emergency financial burden as well as counseling and recovery support. Emergency financial assistance is in the form of checks paid directly to mortgage lenders, auto mechanics, contractors, hospitals, doctors, dentists, and other providers.

“We are quite pleased to be a sponsor of this wonderful event,” Binkley said. “The fine work that Operation Homefront does for our military personnel and their families is truly commendable. We as an organization are delighted to help raise funds for their services.”

Our participation in this event is driven by our recognition that the brave members of our armed forces and their families are truly the unsung heroes of the past ten years. Since 9/11 these folks have been leading the war on terror and have been doing so exceptionally. Ryan and Generational Equity have nothing but the highest regard for them and we hope that in some small way our participation in the Marine Corps Marathon shows our collective gratitude for the sacrifices these people and their families have made the past ten years to keep us safe.
