UFC Legend Randy Couture Gives $50,000 to Wounded Soldiers
(Las Vegas, NV January 29, 2010) Randy Couture Continues to be a class act both in and out of the Octagon. This time Couture gives almost $50,000 worth of supplements to America’s Hero’s Wounded In Action.
Perhaps the most recognized name in mixed martial arts (MMA) and true role model to those in the sport, Couture continues to lead by example. Couture, has shown to be an inspiration to the masses outside of MMA as well. Excelling in almost anything he has ever done, from wrestling, to MMA, to acting, Couture always gives back, and most of the time people will never hear about it because he does it for the cause not the publicity..
International Journalism Review (IJR) commends Randy Couture’s most recent donation to the Walter Reed Medical Center to help America’s wounded soldiers. Couture donated $49,278.93 worth of supplements (now known as XCAP) to help aid in their rehabilitation and recovery.
Couture told us, “You’d be surprised how physically fit and how much physical rigor that goes into rehab for these guys. Getting fitted for prosthetics, learning to walk, learning to do a lot of things that we all take for granted. I’m fortunate to be in a position to help them in their recovery”
Randy Couture served 6 years in the US Army before his incredible and ongoing career in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Coming off a seemingly easy win over top ranked Brandon Vera at the age of 46 is just another notch on Couture’s belt of life.
In 2007 Randy Couture formed a non profit organization called Xtreme Couture GI Foundation to raise money and increase awareness for those wounded in action and their families.
This past December Randy made a visit out to Walter Reed where he had the privilege of meeting many of the injured troops and while on his trip Couture donated $100,000 in cash that had been raised through the GI Foundation to 10 families in need.
