BENEFITING: OKLAHOMA CITY NATIONAL MEMORIAL FOUNDATION
EVENT: Oklahoma City Marathon 2017
EVENT DATE: Apr 30, 2017
I'm really excited to run the OKC full again! This will be my 6th time running this amazing race and I'm hoping to finish under 4:30.
While I have ran numerous half and full marathons in 4 different states I can tell you that none compare to the OKC Marathon. This race, A Race To Remember, embodies the spirit of every runner as well as every Oklahoman; determination.
All of us remember the fear, anger, and helplessness we felt on April 19, 1995. As the day unfolded one fact was clear, we were determined to help and to heal. Public servants came from every corner of the state and country to lend support and regular civilians did all they could through donations of time, goods and money. We remember those acts of heroism, both big and small.
By donating to the OKC Memorial through ANY runner, you are saying that you are determined to never forget EVERY life that was changed on that day. It is with that determination, that Oklahoman Spirit, that we will continue to heal and educate to ensure that something like this will never happen again.
