BENEFITING: RIAFC FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Oct 13, 2013
In support of the Rhode Island Association of Fire Chiefs (RIAFC) Foundation and my brother who is actively and proudly serving our country in the U.S. Navy, I am dedicating my 4th half-marathon to honor Rhode Island's war veterans for all of their sacrifices both home and abroad by raising funds for the RIAFC Foundation Honor Flight Hub.
The mission of the RIAFC Foundation's Honor Flight Hub is to raise funds to transport our war heroes for a one-day round trip to Washington D.C to visit and reflect at their war memorials. This is part of the national Honor Flight Network, a non-profit organization.
The success and future of the Honor Flights lies with the generosity of donor's to provide these veterans with a once in a lifetime experience. Every little bit helps, I truly appreciate any and all amounts of support to help honor these courageous and deserving veterans.
A moving tribute and documentary memorializing the most recent RIAFC Honor Flight aired on NBC Channel 10 over the 2013 Memorial Day weekend titled "Heroes of History". Use the link below to watch and learn more about the Honor Flight: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kRJUPG_6B-w
