Friends and Family, I am honored to be running once again in this year’s 42nd Marine Corps Marathon in Arlington, VA. It is a privilege to be able to participate in this event; MCM is one of the largest marathons in the US and the world. It is inspired by a post-Vietnam era memo, "The People's Marathon" which has motivated individuals for over four decades. This year, I am running with a charity bib for Medals of Honor (www.medalsofhonor.org). This organization honors the fallen military and the families they left behind through endurance sports and fitness in order to heal the seen and unseen wounds of war for both surviving family members and veterans. Check out their website and I think you will agree this group is worthy of our support. My goal is to raise at least $500 for Medals of Honor by July 31st, 2017. Please join me in supporting Medals of Honor. Thank you so much in advance for your support our military men and women, those heroes who have made the ultimate sacrifice and the families they leave behind.
