THE STORY:

Lady Vikings VMFA 225 wrote -

WE RUN FREE BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE.

We are 6 Marine Corps spouses running America's Finest City Half Marathon on August 20, 2017, in San Diego, CA. We are honored to support and spread awareness for an outstanding cause, The Wingman Foundation. They are a non-profit organization that provides critical post-mishap financial relief to the families and the squadron to cover any immediate costs associated with an aviation disaster. Founded by 3 active duty Marines, they have grown to an all volunteer staff of over a dozen active and former Marine and Navy pilots and civilians.

http://www.wingmanfoundation.org/mission/

Their mission is to honor the sacrifices of our fallen air warriors and support the families left behind. We are proudly following in their footsteps by honoring a former squadron member, Major Sterling "Stranger" Norton and his wife, Leah. We are fundraising to spread awareness of this cause that hits close to home for our squadron, VMFA-(AW) 225 - The Vikings. 100% of our fundraising efforts will go directly to The Wingman Foundation to honor the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. We hope you are moved to donate to our cause. You can do so by matching the total miles we run while training - collectively or individually - through race day, or by contributing a flat donation. Please take a moment to share our fundraising mission and that of The Wingman Foundation.

Thank you
Semper Fi ~ Always Faithful
