Dear family and friends,
I am running the 40th Marine Corps Marathon in Washington DC on October 26, 2014. This mission is not to secure my spot in the Marine Corps Marathon...I am already registered and ready to roll... I just want to use my passion for running to give back! To show my support and respect to a select special group of people and their families for their service and sacrifice, I am utilizing this event to raise funds for the "31 Heroes Project" which provides support for the U.S. Navy SEAL Foundation.
The U.S. Navy SEAL Foundation was 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 (SOF) 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. Please consider helping me help and support those that grant us the very freedoms we cherish on a daily basis. No amount is too small or too large. Thanks for your consideration!
With warmest regards,
Kirk P. Kellerhals
