We made the $500 goal; however, let's keep it going! Every dollar helps out an amazing cause!!!!
DFTBA: Don't Forget To Be Awesome!!!!!!!
I am fundraising for a great cause: The Wounded Wear Project! I believe that the Wounded Wear Project is an amazing cause (as you can read below) and my fundraising will culminate with another mudder on August 24th, 2013 (mudder is a term for a race that causes the participants to get extremely muddy!) This one is The Great American Mud Run, a 5K race with 13 obstacles (similar to the Warrior Dash I have done for the last 3 years).
The Organization: "Wounded Wear’s mission is to raise the national awareness of the sacrifice of wounded warriors, their families, and the families of fallen service members. In support of this mission Wounded Wear advocates on behalf and facilitates opportunities for those who have sacrificed so much, as well as providing free fashionable clothing kits and modifications to wounded warriors that empower them to rediscover the hero within."
The Runner: Each one of you know me in a different capacity. To some I am a friend, a family member, a colleague, a former classmate, etc. However, I hope to all, I am someone who you believe gives passion and conviction in everything I do and accomplish. It is because of this, I am fundraising for this race. I have passion and drive to keep motivated and continue to challenge myself with difficult goals. I am who I am because of my interactions with many of you, great and small. For that, I thank you.
All donations must be in by August 18th! I have increased my goal from $250 - to $500!!!! I know it is a lofty goal; however, I am confident, that with your support - we can do it!!!
**Note the fundraiser name: DFTBA - my life mantra - Don't Forget To Be Awesome - something I hope each one of you can incorporate into your daily lives.
Thanks in advance!
Keep running and stay muddy!
