BENEFITING: INJURED MARINE SEMPER FI FUND
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
So hey, I'm going to be running the NYC Marathon with the Semper Fi Fund this year!!!
If you're unfamiliar with them, the Semper Fi Fund is an awesome nonprofit organisation. They work to provide financial assistance or even lifetime support to injured/ill service members as well as their families and they do all of that while only working with a 5% overhead. Basically, they give ~95% of their money directly to those in need and then use that remaining 5% to further their cause, which is pretty incredible.
I'm really, really passionate about this organisation. I really love what they do and what they stand for. The Semper Fi Fund was actually started by military spouses and I know it sounds kind of cheesy but that really resonates with me. I think it's amazing that a group of people can get together and say, "Hey, let's make a difference!" and then actually do it.
Anyway, I'm willing to put my money where my mouth is. If you're willing to donate, I'm willing to match the highest donation I get, even if you decide to pool your money with other people and donate in one big chunk. The NYC marathon isn't until November 6 but I'm trying to raise $3,000 before October so I'll match the highest donation as of September 30th.
So please, think it over, think it under. I know there are a lot of great causes out there vying for your attention, but I'd really appreciate your time and consideration in this matter. Thank you! :)
