Operation Amerithon is my run across the country in collaboration with Bullets2Bandages.org, raising money for The Travis Manion Foundation.

via Crowdrise 2 years ago

THE STORY:

To give "putting in the legwork" an entirely new meaning. Through a collaboration with the Travis Manion Foundation and Bullets2Bandages, our hope is to turn one man's journey across the country into a new start for our nation's veterans and the families they have left behind.



Follow Albie as he and "Team Amerithon" travel from LA to Washington D.C. via foot this March. ALL PROCEEDS will be going towards The Travis Manion Foundation which has three main programs:

  • Honor the Fallen- After the casualty officer leaves and support fades, families are left with a loss that forever changes their lives.  The Travis Manion Foundation offers opportunities for children, parents, spouses, siblings and battle buddies to honor their loved one by challenging themselves in uniquely personal ways.  We also partner with the Mission Continues to offer a program that keeps the spirit of service and love of country alive for every Fallen Hero.
  • Character Does Matter - Is designed to challenge young men and women to look for the moments in their lives where they can do good – to recognize both big and small decisions as opportunities to stand up for others, defend what’s right, and help those around; to encourage each and every person to ask themselves “IF NOT ME, THEN WHO…”
  • 9/11 Heroes RunRun.  Volunteer.  Donate.  Cheer.  But most of all Honor.  Inspired by Travis' visit to Rescue Team One in New York City before his final deployment to Iraq, the Travis Manion Foundation holds 5K runs to honor September 11th.  The annual 9/11 Heroes Run is held to remember, honor and support our men and women in the Armed Services, Police, Firefighter and emergency responder communities who protect and serve our country every day. 

In addition to these programs,  TeamTravis is designed for individuals who identify with and are inspired by Travis Manion's "If not me, then who.." spirit. Challenges consist of marathons and half marathons, triathlons, cycling events and other athletic competitions in various locations throughout the country,  in which members join the team and raise money and awareness for the Travis Manion Foundation. 

The foundation also "Continues His Mission" through Scholarships, Grief Seminars in partnership with TAPS, and service projects.

The selflessness and spirit of service that Travis and all of our Fallen Heroes had continue to be the driving force behind the foundation. To learn more about the foundation, its programs, and events please visitwww.TravisManion.com
