ORGANIZER: The Glen Doherty Memorial Foundation
EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
I am honored to be part of the Glen Doherty Memorial Foundation's 2015 Boston Marathon Team! As a commited supporter of our Veterans, I am proud to have a second opportunity to help GDMF further their cause and thank those who sacrifice so much for our country!
My husband is a United States military officer. Our friends have served in Vietnam, Desert Storm, Iraq and Afghanistan; and I have seen the devastating physical, mental, and emotional impacts of deployments on our troops and their families. Glen Doherty made the ultimate sacrifice for our country while protecting the United States consulate in Benghazi, Lybia. The courage, selflessness, perseverance and devotion of our service men and women are remarkable. They deserve our support.
The Glen Doherty Memorial Foundation granted eight scholarships to very deserving service members and their families with the funds raised during the 2014 Boston Marathon. Please join me this year to raise $10,000 to celebrate Glen, support those who get up every day to fight for the freedoms that we hold dear, and to assist the Glen Doherty Memorial Foundation in furthering their worthy mission. Your generous contributions go directly toward scholarships for active duty and former Special Operations service members and/or their families to grow, transition and heal through education and recreation.
With heartfelt thanks and gratitude,
