Help Me Support Wounded Warrior Project as I fundraise for the Chicago Marathon!
June 23, 2016
Please help me raise money for the Chicago Marathon, October 2016, as I run to support the Wounded Warriors Project !
As many of you know, last year I went on a trip to Israel and had the amazing experience to meet, communicate, and gain insight into the life of Israeli soldiers…even fall in love with one of them!! Unfortunately for me, until this trip I had never met a soldier my age who had experienced what these men and women have been through. Living in the USA has privileged me of the freedoms that our soldiers and soldiers of other countries fight to protect. This experience opened my eyes to all soldiers worldwide, especially in the US and Israel, the sacrifices they make, the effect war has on them at such a young age, has on their lives forever, and the need for a support system to help them through their experience and allow them to enjoy the freedom we take for granted. This will be my first marathon and I ask for your support as I raise money to fund the Wounded Warriors Project. This organization affects veterans lives enormously and each donation can help make a difference in their journey.
Thank you :)
