(Chicago) November 19, 2014 – Medix, a national organization specialized in workforce solutions and recruiting skilled personnel for clients in Scientific, Healthcare and Information Technology industries, is a title sponsor of five-time Pro Bowl defensive end, Jared Allen’s 2014 Helping Heroes Gala, an event to help raise funds and awareness for Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors (JAH4WW) nonprofit foundation.

‘The brave men and women who have fought and sacrificed so much for our freedom deserve all the support we can offer. An event like Helping Heroes, which supports an amazing organization like JAH4WW, is a great opportunity to give back to these courageous soldiers,” said Andrew Limouris, President and CEO of Medix. “Helping Heroes will feature a cocktail reception, silent auction, dinner, live auction and live entertainment. All proceeds from the auctions will go directly toward building or remodeling handicap accessible homes for our injured veterans.”

Helping Heroes will take place at the legendary Palmer House, A Hilton Hotel in the heart of downtown Chicago, starting at 6:30 p.m.

“JAH4WW provides financial assistance and support to United States military veterans by building and remodeling handicap accessible homes to suit their individual needs one wounded warrior at a time, and we are extremely proud, yet humbled, to work with such a great cause,” said Limouris. “Thanks to the Helping Heroes attendees, JAH4WW will continue to positively impact the lives of Army Sgt. 1st Class Cory Remsburg, Army Sgt. John Ricketts, Sgt. Colin Faust and other wounded warriors.”

About Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors

Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors is a non-profit organization created for the sole purpose of raising money to build or modify the homes of America’s injured military veterans. JAH4WW was established in October of 2009 after Jared Allen returned home from a trip to the US Military Bases in the Middle East.  Jared was moved by the commitment, dedication and sacrifices that our soldiers make every day to protect our freedom.  It is Jared’s hope that this foundation will help make the lives of wounded vets a little bit easier.
