BENEFITING: HOPE FOR THE WARRIORS
ORGANIZER: HOPE FOR THE WARRIORS
Being based in China and having spent the majority of the past 4 years here, I've learned how to respect different cultural nuances while deepening my appreciation for the United States of America. The United States of America is where we treasure the freedom to be who you are and the acceptance for doing so.
There are enemies to this freedom of choice, both through word and action, and warriors who wield both sword and pen to defend this freedom. These warriors make a deliberate choice to make their voices heard and sacrifice their mind and body to do so.
I am running the 2016 NYC Marathon on behalf of Hope For The Warriors to raise awareness for the organization, the warriors it serves, and the freedom these warriors choose to protect.
There are many reasons for not ‘answering the call’ and that is a choice to be respected. However, I am asking you to join me in supporting those that have. Let us make it so these warriors have the hope to return to normalcy and enjoy the freedoms we take advantage of everyday.
