In 2012 Race For The Wounded would start to help bring awareness to the fight that our combat veterans go through on a daily basis. The founder of Race For The Wounded (Brett Robinson) had the idea in Afghanistan in 2011 and Race For The Wounded was up and running in November 2012 with its first race being the Baja 1000. Brett wanted to ensure that the funds raised would be used to help his brothers and sisters live the dream of racing, this is why Race For The Wounded is 100% volunteer with the motto "CHANGING LIVES ONE RACE AT A TIME"
