Jeremy: The first patch is the JnJ WorldWide patch which has the world on it and my fiancé and I plan on visiting as much of the world as possible and also that together we are powerful. This means a lot to me because we continue to grow and are an amazing team hoping to be even better each day. We plan on doing major traveling and fun things. The second patch is a fun patch to give to friends who join us in the missions or awareness of other support groups.

The/Studio: Do you have any promotions you would like to offer our community?
Jeremy: Currently on www.team1cares.com we have a few virtual runs that the proceeds go to veteran based charities.
The/Studio: Very cool! I am going to look into this! Maybe The/Studio team can participate. Do you have any upcoming events that our community members can attend?
Jeremy: Our wedding will be in August and we also plan on going to attend many events through the east coast and hopefully make some on the west coast. We do plan on honey mooning to Hawaii to also race there.
The/Studio: Sounds like a fun honeymoon! Is there anything our community members can do to help?
Jeremy: I work with a non profit charity called Team 1… basically teaming all teams together to share awareness of those indeed. www.team1cares.com is our website.
Thank you Jeremy for sharing your story with us. It’s an honor to interview a Veteran. Thank you for all you do for our country! We wish you and Janis a lifetime of travel and happiness.
