As most of you may know I love running, jumping, swimming, cycling, and fitness in any form, but, if you really know me, you know I also love giving to people in need...the Semper Fi Fund is to financially help injured Marines and their families.
My son, Alex, is a Marine Corps. Officer deployed to Afghanistan, that's him, the handsome young man in the photo....no, not the Secretary of Defense, the other guy. This fundraiser is to honor my son and all of the Marines who protect our country every day.
Anything you can afford to donate would help these Marines and their families and will make a huge difference in their lives. 100% of the donation goes directly to the "Semper Fi Fund".
I am participating in the "Devil Dog" Duathlon at Camp Pendleton, the Marine Corps base that my son is stationed at when not in Afghanistan. So please come down on April 14, 2012 and cheer us on for a good cause.
THIS IS SO IMPORTANT TO ME PERSONALLY, please donate, this is your chance to make a true difference to so many of our Soldiers. Oorah!
