BENEFITING: MARINE RECONNAISSANCE FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: May 20, 2016
The Reconnaissance Challenge is a time for our community to come together and challenge ourselves in the spirit of remembrance and brotherhood. The Recon Challenge is the only event that brings together our Reconnaissance Marines in honor of our fallen brothers. The Recon Challenge has continued throughout the years to strengthen an already strong brotherhood within the 0321 Reconnaissance Community but most importantly it has continued to bring the Reconnaissance Community together each year to represent our Fallen Reconnaissance Marines that have made the ultimate sacrifices for our Country, Team Mates and most importantly their Families. The Recon Challenge is dedicated to those RECON Men who are no longer with us but continue to provide “Overwatch” from above.
The following programs will be supported from funds raised through the 8th Annual Recon Challenge.
The Marine Reconnaissance Foundation’s programs focus on alleviating the demands accompanying service within the Reconnaissance Community. All supported initiatives are aimed to enrich the well-being of our warriors and their families. We provide wide-ranging support programs, to include an extensive assessment of our programs contributing directly to the success and preservation of the Reconnaissance Legacy. We continually research the community’s needs shaping our future program development and funding. Our mission is implemented by way of support to the Active-Duty and Veteran Reconnaissance community, their families, and the families of the fallen in four programs.
