If you're reading this, you likely have a pretty good idea of who I am. If you don't, however, that's unfortunate. I am a 24 year old Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps acting as a Crewchief/Loadmaster hybrid on the Corps' largest cargo airframe, the K-C130J. I've served for nearly six years now and spent several (safe) months overseas over the course of three deployments.
Last year I had the honor of running alongside fellow servicemembers, veterans and other great men and woman during my first ever marathon. This year, I would like to accomplish the same feat, but this time helping others while doing so. What I meanby that is that instead of simply paying the registration fee, I have opted to reach a goal of $500.00 in donations for Water for People. Meeting this goal will allow me to run the race this year and benefit people around the world in need of water. Talk about getting two birds stoned at once!
If you would like to know more about the charity that I have chosen to work with, explore the link and read on. I would greatly appreciate that if you're still reading this you donate if you can, share it if you feel like it, and come October have a drink - or five - for me, because running sucks. But, so does not having water.
