I am registered to run the 40th Marine Corps Marathon on October 25, 2015 in Washington DC. I want to use this opportunity and my passion for running to give back to the service members and their families who have made unspeakable sacrifices in the name of protecting our freedoms.
Established to serve U.S. Navy SEALs, Special Warfare Combatant-craft Crewmen, Naval Special Warfare (NSW) support personnel, and their families, the Navy SEAL Foundation provides a comprehensive set of programs specifically designed to reduce the stressors associated with the tremendous amount of uncertainty and pressure that comes with life in Naval Special Warfare (NSW). Since the 9/11 terrorist attacks, there has been an unprecedented demand for Special Operations Forces around the globe. SEALs spend up to 270 days away from home each year in the most unforgiving environments and training at an unrelenting pace in order to maintain their ability to execute our nation’s toughest military missions. Their commitment to our country and the mission is only possible because of the significant personal sacrifices made by their families.
With a focus on moving from transactional to transformational, One Team One Fight does more than just help raise money for incredible causes. They forge relationships, facilitate experiences, and empower passions that last a lifetime. Because sometimes running a race is about more than just reaching the finish line.
When I cross the finish line of the Marine Corps Marathon, I want to know that my efforts reached far beyond any accomplishments on the race course....I want to know that with the help and support of family and friends that a positive difference was made in the lives of those that we entrust to protect our freedoms!
