“Our partnership with Rick Ware Racing and Nurtec ODT – this time supporting the Gary Sinise Foundation – is something that we’re honored to continue this Memorial Day,” said Rich Caponi, Chief Revenue Officer of Nine Line Apparel. “For us to help raise awareness and support for such a great foundation, while honoring those who have given their lives for our freedom, humbles us beyond words, and we are grateful for the opportunity.”
The Gary Sinise Foundation was established under the philanthropic direction of award-winning actor and humanitarian Gary Sinise, who has been an advocate of our nation's defenders for nearly 40 years. The Gary Sinise Foundation's mission is to serve our country by honoring and supporting our defenders, veterans, first responders, their families, and those in need. "As we approach Memorial Day weekend, we send our heartfelt gratitude and appreciation to Rick Ware Racing, Biohaven’s Nurtec ODT, and Nine Line Apparel for choosing the Gary Sinise Foundation as a charity partner and honoring those who gave their all," said Gary Sinise, actor, and founder of Gary Sinise Foundation. "The Gary Sinise Foundation strives to do all that we can to support our nation’s most severely wounded veterans, our service men and women, first responders and the families who sacrifice alongside them – especially those suffering the loss of their hero – the families of our fallen who we will never forget." “We are beyond grateful for the opportunity to honor our nation’s heroes in the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway," commented team owner Rick Ware. "Over the past year and half, we have been fortunate enough to create an awesome program to give back to our men and women in uniform, along with their families. RWR as a whole is honored to pay tribute to all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms, during the 600 Miles of Remembrance at Charlotte Motor Speedway." Since launching the Military Salutes program in 2021, RWR and Nurtec ODT have visited nearly 50 military bases across the United States, including attending the ceremony commemorating the 80th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. Working in partnership with Nine Line Apparel, the group has raised nearly $250,000 for various military charities and has honored over 1,300 fallen service members in special campaigns with RWR’s NASCAR Cup Series cars. "We hear often from active-duty service members, veterans and their families about the impact migraine has on their lives," said Vlad Coric, MD, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of Biohaven. "Through our sponsorship with Rick Ware Racing, we have been able to support the military community and honor our fallen heroes and their families. We are thankful for their service and dedication to protect our freedom. Our goal is to identify and collaborate with innovative partners to raise awareness of migraine and Nurtec ODT as a treatment option.” For additional information on Nurtec ODT, visit www.nurtec.com.
