EVENT: Marine Corps Marathon 2015
I'm so humbled to be running the 2015 Marine Corp Marathon as a member of the MA Fallen Heroes Foundation. This will be my second marathon ever, and I am ready to put my body through this training to raise funds for a great organization like this.
Headquartered in Boston, MA, Massachusetts Fallen Heroes was established in 2010 by Boston firefighters, local Veterans, Gold Star Families, Police Officers, and other patriotic citizens. Massachusetts Fallen Heroes is comprised of a group of Veterans and Gold Star family members who have experienced the hardships of war firsthand and understand that its impact does not end upon a service member’s return home. Massachusetts Fallen Heroes also understands the enduring impact on those families who did not have a loved one return home.
Massachusetts Fallen Heroes proudly partners with a network of Massachusetts civilian organizations, Veterans organizations, non-profits, and private corporations who kindly donate their professional services to assist in the process of providing local Veterans and their families with specialized assistance.
Massachusetts Fallen Heroes has evolved from a charity strictly geared towards building a tribute honoring fallen heroes into a multifaceted organization. Massachusetts Fallen Heroes now also acts as a liaison in acquiring educational, employment, medical, legal, financial and numerous additional services to local military veterans, their families and families of the fallen. Massachusetts Fallen Heroes holds a series of events throughout the year honoring those who have served and especially those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
