THE STORY:

Jamie Teabo wrote -

I am participating in the Destin 50K next month. This is a very challenging 31 mile race on the beautiful beaches of Destin. I am running to raise money for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. This will be the third time I have participated in this race and raising funds for this very worthy cause.  Created in 1980, Special Operations Warrior Foundation is devoted to providing a college education to every child who has lost a parent serving in the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps during an operational or training mission under the U.S. Special Operations Command. This includes over 70,000 military special operations and support personnel assigned to units throughout the United States and around the world. The Warrior Foundation is currently committed to providing scholarship grants to more than 950 children of the 866 Special Operations personnel who have given their lives for their country since 1980, including those who died fighting our nation's war against terrorism as part of "Operation Enduring Freedom" in Afghanistan and the Philippines as well as "Operation Iraqi Freedom." Currently, 214 children of fallen special operations warriors have graduated from college with the assistance of the SOWF. The Special Operations Warrior Foundation also provides immediate $3,000 cash grants to personnel seriously wounded in the line of duty. Once notified of a special operations soldier, airman, sailor or Marine hospitalized with a severe injury, the SOWF immediately sends funds to the service member (or his/her designated recipient) so family members can immediately travel to be at their loved one's bedside. Since this program began in 2005, the Special Operations Warrior Foundation has provided over $ 1.8 million to wounded special operations personnel. Any donation to this very worthy cause would be greatly appreciated. Wish me luck!! Jamie
