BENEFITING: MASSACHUSETTS MILITARY HEROES FUND
ORGANIZER: MASSACHUSETTS MILITARY HEROES FUND
EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
Welcome to my 2015 Boston Marathon fundraising page! I am running Boston to raise funds and awareness for the Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund. I chose MMHF to honor our brothers and sisters in arms that have made the ultimate sacrifice for freedom.
As a veteran of Operations Iraqi Freedom, Enduring Freedom, Noble Eagle and multiple other contingencies, supporting my fellow service members is near and dear to me. I have served in the US Air Force for nearly twenty years and have been blessed to serve along side the finest men and women our nation has to offer.
Please support me in my first marathon challenge so that together we can all support our fallen heroes and their families.
About the Cause:
Our team is raising funds and awareness about the needs of Massachusetts military families who have lost loved ones fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund supports these families through:
- Several direct grant programs - including, Emergency Casualty Assistance (to help pay for funeral related costs not covered by the military) and Basic Needs (to keep a family financially stable during a time of crisis)
- Referrals, advocacy and case management services
- Community Building Events designed to remember and honor our fallen heroes. These are public and private events, including our annual Memorial Day flag garden on Boston Common and a 9/11 Service Project to Support Our Troops & Families
Help honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice by supporting their families today. Read more about Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund at www.massmilitaryheroes.org.
