BENEFITING: TEAM RED WHITE & BLUE
EVENT DATE: May 25, 2014
This year, Jeff and Joey Sangillo will join Team Summers as we run the Memorial Day Races, carry an American flag and raise some money for an awesome cause!
Over the past 2 years, Chrissy and I have had the privilege of participating in the Memorial Day Races in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts. Our good friends, Sam and Carrie Russo, rallied a group of fellow Army officers and friends to run together and raise money for wounded veterans and their families. In 2 years of racing and with your generous support, we've collectively raised over $50,000 towards the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund and Team Red, White and Blue.
During each race, we carried an American flag to honor those who have served before us. This year, we'll be doing the same. With a baby on the way, Chrissy won't be running, but we've recruited two more friends to push us along the way - Jeff and Joey Sangillo. Jeff has been a lifetime friend, lives in Chicago with his finance, Lindsey, and works as an international logistics consultant. Joey has also been an awesome friend and serves as a leader and educator in Maryland, where he lives with his husband, Seth. This year, we'll be raising money for Team Red, White and Blue - a group that seeks to enrich the lives of veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity (http://teamrwb.org). We can't begin to thank you for your generous support this year as we proudly carry the flag on Memorial Day!
