BENEFITING: Team R4V Incorporated
EVENT DATE: Oct 26, 2014
My name is Jim O'Keefe and this year (2014) I will be running in the 39th annual Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, D.C. I am not, however, running in this marathon for myself. I am running for the charity Racing for Veterans (R4V), an awesome charity that helps wounded veterans heal through physical activity. You can check out their website here: http://www.teamr4v.org/
While I do not personally know any wounded veterans, I do have a connection to the military, specifically the Marine Corps. My connection is through one of my best friends, who is currently serving as an officer. Regardless of my connection, I truly appreciate the men and women that put their lives at risk to help keep our country safe. I also believe that when they return, if they need help, we should return the favor so-to-speak and help them out any way we can.
I have pledged to raise $500 for R4V (I hope to surpass this number!!!) and I hope you can help me and the R4V team out by donating as little or as much as you can. I appreciate any help I can get for this extremely awesome cause!
Thank you to all who have taken the time to read this, and a BIG thanks to anyone who donates!!
