Aaron Benningfield's Fundraiser:

Aaron Benningfield MCM2015

BENEFITING: TEAM RED WHITE & BLUE

EVENT: Team RWB Marine Corps. Marathon

EVENT DATE: Oct 25, 2015

Aaron Benningfield

THE STORY:

I started running at the age of 11 and have not stopped for the past 23 years. As a Marine, the highest honor is to represent Team Red, White and Blue at the Marine Corps Marathon. The "People's Marathon" as it is affectionately known, is the pinnacle of my racing career and represents all that Team RWB has come to stand for. Enriching veterans' lives is more than a catch phrase, it is a life philosophy. Please join me in raising the funds to help raise up my brothers and sisters in arms and make sure no one is left behind.

The minimum to raise for this event is $500.  Why set the bar to $1,000? To give you kind folks more incentive.  If I meet my $1,000 goal I will run the entire Marine Corps Marathon in a gas mask in honor of the good folks at 22toomany.com which is an intiative to end the epidemic of 22 veterans that take their own life each and every day.  It will be hard to breathe and there is every chance of failure when you pull a crazy stunt like this, but I will fight to the finish. I will not let anyone be forgotten. 


Semper Fidelis,
Aaron L. Benningfield
Staff Sergeant USMC

Aaron, thank you for sharing your personal story with us on Facebook. At first this seemed like just another honorable charity, despite the fact that I have soldiers and marines (retired & active duty) in my family. None of them have every talked about these issues, as their pride would no doubt stand in their way. That is why I'm glad you shared. It reminds us all that no matter what someone's outward persona is saying, what's going on below the surface can be and usually is very different. Let's hope this run, the support, and the social media coverage spread the message and help save one, if not all, of today's 22. Thanks again for sharing. Now get out there and kill those miles today. 2 years ago
