On Saturday I will be running (?!) in the 9/11 Heroes Run in Shirlington, which will benefit the Travis Manion Foundation.
It's a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that directly supports veterans, their families, and families of fallen service members by providing emergency assistance, scholarships, and other direct financial support when a family or veteran is in need. Families who have lost a loved one want nothing more than to honor their fallen heroes memory in a way that exemplifies their sacrifice. Similarly, veterans are looking for a mission and purpose once they leave active service.
50% of all race proceeds will be donated locally & directly to the Travis Mills Fund (www.TravisMills.org), with the remaining 50% going to the foundation sponsoring the event.
Please consider donating to the cause - thanks! And local people, let me know if you'd like to join our team!
