MINNEAPOLIS – (July 8, 2015) – U.S. Bank and Freedom Alliance will be donating a customized all-terrain trackchair to United States Marine Corporal Kevin Hanrahan and his family in recognition of his service on Wednesday, July 8, at 10 a.m. at the U.S. Bank Plaza (200 S. 6th Street) in downtown Minneapolis.
Hanrahan was deployed overseas three times to Haiti, the Mediterranean and Afghanistan. While serving his country, Hanrahan was seriously injured and as a result, lost one leg and part of another. Hanrahan and his family lived at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for nearly three years following the incident. They recently moved to Eau Claire, Wis.
“We are beyond thrilled to partner with Freedom Alliance and present this trackchair to Corporal Hanrahan,” said xx. “U.S. Bank is dedicated to supporting the military, veterans and their families. We want to thank Kevin for his service to our country and celebrate his accomplishments with him.”
The all-terrain trackchair will provide Hanrahan the ability to be mobile across a variety of different terrains. The chair has treads that grip the ground, which will be a real asset for Hanrahan as he is an avid fisher and hunter.
“Kevin Hanrahan is a U.S. Marine who valiantly served our country for many years,” said Tom Kilgannon, Freedom Alliance president. “We appreciate his service to our country and are honored that we can present this trackchair to him so he can better enjoy those outdoor activities that he has been doing his entire life.”
