BENEFITING: ORANGE COUNTY CITIZENS FOUNDATION INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012
I decided to cross off a marathon from my bucket list. I really wanted to do it while raising money for charity but I had a very difficult time picking one specifically. I finally decided on the Hudson Valley Honor Flight. This is a charity for World War II veterans. There is a flight that will be leaving Stewart airport on April 20, 2013, that will fly a plane full of veterans to Washington D.C. so they can visit the WWII Memorial for the day while exchanging stories from each others past. The veterans do not pay one dime for this event and all the money is raised through donations. Unfortunately, nationally these veterans are dying at 1,000 per day and some that are signed up for this year's flight may not be around by the time the plane takes off. So, I wanted to do what I could for these very special men and women. They are all unforgotten heroes and without their sacrifices, who knows where our nation would be. Please help support me and these individuals that were willing to give their lives for our nation. Visit www.hvhonorflight.com for further info. I really appreciate your kindness!!!
