“Reckless with Red” is an annual skydive fundraiser that benefits the Mental Health Association of Nassau County, a member of the Veterans Health Alliance of Long Island (VHALI).

The goal of the fundraiser is to raise awareness and monetary support for a collaborative organization that is committed to meeting the needs of our veterans here on Long Island, NY.

John “Red” Pelan, the namesake of the event, served as a combat paratrooper in the 187th Airborne during the Korean War. In 2008, Red was able to experience the feeling of jumping out of an airplane again for his 77th birthday when his granddaughter, Darah Salmaggi, envisioned an out-of-the-box event that would raise money for programs that would help our veterans recover from combat-related wounds such as PTSD and TBI.

Now in its fifth year, “Reckless with Red” provides funding for vital programs set up by VHALI and there\'s a number of ways for your institution or company to demonstrate its support for the health and recovery of our veterans. Of the many ways listed in this sponsorship package available upon request, we find the most advantageous and mutually-beneficial arrangement involves your willingness to become an official sponsor of our annual skydive event and in return your company\'s logo would get great exposure printed on our jump-shirts.

Comments on the Military and Business Ownership...

“Military has taught me how to get something down by streamlining the process and focusing on the end result. In the event of facing obstacles, take a step back, refocus and then go accomplish the mission.”
