BENEFITING: OKLAHOMA CITY NATIONAL MEMORIAL FOUNDATION
EVENT: Oklahoma City Marathon 2013
EVENT DATE: Apr 28, 2013
The Oklahoma City Marathon will be my 50th Marathon and I am raising money for a very good cause ; the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum.
I visited Oklahoma City in 1997 and saw the impact of the bombing that occurred in 1995 of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building when 168 people were killed. The mission statement of the National Memorial is; "We come here to remember those who were killed, those who survived and those changed forever. May all who leave here know the impact of violence. May this memorial offer comfort, strength, peace, hope and serenity."
This memorial gives life to an important piece of history and all funds donated will support this cause.
