wow, again, Glen is pushing me to be better, stronger and braver than i see myself.
coming back to the NYC marathon for the second time - last year was a stunning experience. the training, the money raised to help the Special Ops community we are so lucky to serve, the miles with friends. damn, it was incredible. my biggest muscle ache? my face/cheeks from smiling ear to ear. #truth
and this years team: Robyn, Gabby, Aria, Barny and Jim - are all the BEST people, runners, friends and are the heart of GDMF.
we run because Glen cannot. we finish with beers because Glen would want us to.
he gave his life for us, for the 30 diplomats in Benghazi that he saved, he set the stage and now it is our time to act. so giddy-up...time to lace up or shut up.
and time to ask you to please donate anything you can to further the GDMF mission.
here are the #GDMF brass tacks:
OUR MISSION: To ease the transition from military life and work to that of a civilian by helping fund educational costs for Special Operation individuals and their children. We do this knowing Glen's spirit will continue to touch us all.
OUR FOCUS: Our focus is on providing current and former special operations professionals, from all branches of the government, the means necessary to transition and succeed in civilian life. We are also enabling the children and families of these soldiers the ability to mature and grow through recreation. We employ the following tools to achieve our goals:
Scholarships for current or former Special Operation Professionals used for traditional education
Scholarships for current or former Special Operations Professionals used for vocational and non-traditional training
Subsidies and grants for the children of Special Operations Professionals to attend camps that build leadership
Gifts for the families of Special Operations Professionals and Foreign Service Officers, where a loss or life-changing debilitating injury has been suffered, to be used for recreation as a way of supporting the family unit through positive outdoor activities
OUR CHARITY: We are a 501(c)(3) charity organization dedicated to honoring and preserving the memory of Glen Doherty and all those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in defending our nation. EIN #: 46-1149168
