BENEFITING: Navy SEAL Foundation
EVENT DATE: Nov 08, 2014
I’m an athlete (term used loosely) running in conjunction with One Team One Fight, a partnership between the Navy SEAL Foundation and the Travis Manion Foundation. I have joined forces with this competitive endurance team to raise funds and awareness for fallen service members and the families they have left behind.
I am going to run my first marathon at the young age of 59, the Savannah Georgia Rock & Roll Marathon.
I wanted to make it meaningful for myself and one of the best ideas I could come up with is to try to raise awareness of these great foundations and attempt to raise a little dinero for the cause.
Since September 11th, 2001 over 6,650 have paid the ultimate sacrifice, including 81 Naval Special Warfare community members. Each one of these men and women is someone's child, many of them are brothers or sisters, even more are parents, and all of them are heroes. I’m running on behalf of the families that are left behind, to honor the fallen, and prove that no one will be forgotten.
We may not have had an opportunity to serve, but this is a nice way to pitch in and help these extreme American Heroes families
