BENEFITING: The Mission Continues
EVENT DATE: Nov 15, 2014
Thank you for taking the time to visit this site. I would like to use our "Halfway Home 1/2 Marathon" on this deployment to raise awareness and provide this donation link to a great non-profit devoted to veterans, in honor of the loved ones we have lost to suicide. I am deeply disturbed by the fact that 22 service members commit suicide daily, and I am often troubled by the memory of my father's suicide. This donation site is my small way to help care for those who may struggle with such thoughts. The Halfway Home 1/2 Marathon will serve as both a physical challenge and an awareness/fundraising campaign for a great cause.
Thank you all for any way that you support, whether it be through donations, prayer, or encouragement to others. Please feel free to read about my selected non-profit, The Mission Continues, by selecting their name at the top of this page or by visiting https://www.missioncontinues.org/about/. You may e-mail me personally at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
"...they've taught me that without courage, compassion falters, and that without compassion, courage has no direction. Life is short. Life is uncertain. But we know that we have today. And we have each other. I believe that for each of us, there is a place on the frontlines.” - Eric Greitens (Founder of The Mission Continues)
