BENEFITING: OKLAHOMA CITY NATIONAL MEMORIAL FOUNDATION
EVENT: Oklahoma City Marathon 2015
EVENT DATE: Apr 26, 2015
20 years ago I was 7, living in Arkansas. At the time this was so far away from my reality, what I knew and it wasn't until later that I understood what happened in Oklahoma City on April 19th, 1995. In 2013 I went to the site of the bombing, visited the museum and the memorial with my dear friend from Germany. I learned more than any book could teach me about that day and the days that followed, about those who lost their lives, loved ones and those who worked tirelessly to save all that they could. I will never forget this day and the tragic days that have followed since,
This is my 3rd Half-Marathon to participate in and my 2nd in Oklahoma. I am looking forward to being out in Oklahoma City with all of the runners, walkers and supporters to show our love and continued support to those who lost loved ones and those who worked to save others.
