I’m so excited to be a part of this group that cares so much about the brave and courageous souls who have, and who are, defending our country. We decided to run this year because my Godmother and my mom’s best friend, Debbie Klein, lost her cousin to the war in Iraq and we want to run in his memory and dedicate this race to him. Well that, and to prove to ourselves that we can in fact run 6.2 miles and survive ☺ Travis Manion, who this organization is named after, was a 1st Lieutenant who lost his life to protect and defend our country on April 29th, 2007. Because of his bravery, he is such an inspiration to me because he went to fight for our country and someday I hope to make my country proud like that. This organization and your generous donations will go towards helping veterans, active duty troops, and families of fallen soldiers. Not enough attention is paid to those who have fallen or are still protecting our country. So, with your donations, we can bring more attention to those who fight because they are protecting us and we owe them that at the bare minimum.
