BENEFITING: FOLDS OF HONOR FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: Folds of Honor
Welcome! This November I'm running the Route 66 Half Marathon in support of the Folds of Honor Foundation. Here's some information about Folds of Honor from their website:
"Of the one million-plus dependents adversely affected by deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, nearly nine out of 10 do not qualify for federal scholarship assistance. Folds of Honor seeks to meet this need by providing annual educational scholarships to the military families of those who have been killed or disabled while in active duty. These help support private education tuition, tutoring and educational summer camps for children K-12, as well as higher education tuition assistance for spouses and children. Since its founding in 2007, the organization is proud to have awarded over 7,500 scholarships, including over 2,000 in 2014 alone."
