A former assistant professor of urology at Tufts University, Dr. Erol Onel serves as vice president of La Jolla, California’s Heron Therapeutics, where he is leading a team responsible for developing a long-term, non-opioid pain relief drug. Beyond his professional endeavors, Dr. Erol Onel supports a variety of nonprofit organizations, including the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP).
Created following the September 11, 2001, terror attack on the World Trade Center, WWP provides free services and programs to tens of thousands of military veterans who have been injured while serving the United States. Its programming survives on support from corporations and individuals throughout the country who raise funds through a variety of means.
One of the primary ways in which supporters can raise money for WWP is through registered fundraisers such as concerts, athletic competitions, or golf tournaments. By registering the fundraiser with WWP, organizers receive access to trademarked logos, poster and press release templates, and social media graphics.
Youth can also show their support for WWP by becoming a student ambassador and organizing fundraising opportunities through their class or athletic team. For best results, campaigns can be organized in conjunction with 9/11, Memorial Day, Flag Day, or Veterans Day. Additionally, individuals can raise money for WWP through campaigns focused on athletic endeavors such as marathons and triathlons. Approved registrants receive specialty WWP jerseys if they raise over $500.
