If you've found yourself perusing this page you're probably awesome and thinking about donating to this great cause. For those of you who haven't spent any amount of time with me I started running long distance races at 18 with my first half marathon (13.1 miles) and have since done over 15 and 3 full marathons (26.2 miles)! I'm getting psyched for my fourth full where I'll be running my second Marine Corps Marathon--this time for charity. Recently for a 2 year span I spent one weekday morning a week counseling veterans who were medically compromised and considered homeless. Their stories were always amazing and the struggles they had to overcome unbelievable. My father is a Vietnam veteran who spent time in the Navy as a cook. One of my best childhood friends did two tours in Afghanistan, now supporting her husband who continues to serve our country while raising their daughter. Needless to say, raising any sort of funds for those who keep us safe is near and dear to my heart.
Massachusetts Fallen Heroes Memorial is a non-profit that helps to raise awareness for veterans. For more information feel free to visit their website: https://www.massfallenheroes.org/
I realize times are tough so there's absolutely no pressure to donate and every penny counts and is appreciated. I thank you all in advance for at least coming to this page and reading my rambling message. I don't do anything with social media so feel free to add this link to your Facebook page, Instagram (can you do that?!), or Twitter! I would be forever grateful for that.
