On February 18, 2010, LCPL Kielin Dunn of 1st Battalion, 6th Marines, was Killed in Action while serving in Afghanistan. I had sent care packages to LCPL Dunn and had never lost an adopted Marine until that very day. I will be running the 2011 L.A. Marathon to honor LCPL Dunn as well as his fellow 1/6 Marines.
In 2010, and all thanks to my wonderful supporters, I raised $1,200 from my first marathon fundraiser which helped tremendously with the costs of sending care packages to my adopted Marines & Soldiers deployed. I was $800 shy of my $2,000 goal and hope to bridge that gap with this final fundraiser before my March 20th L.A. Marathon run.
Funds raised from this fundraiser will support the Wounded Warriors Project which actively provides valuable assistance to our injured service men and women - http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org/component/option,com_frontpage/Itemid,840/
Thank you in advance for your support! SEMPER FI!!
