Dear Friends & Family,
For 5 years, starting in 2013 I ran the Boston Marathon in honor of Tom’s childhood friend and local hero, Glen Doherty. Last year I took a break from running, with kids’ schedules and marathon fatigue playing a large role . But I continued to stay connected by managing Team GDMF, ensuring that our runners were trained up to complete 26.2 miles while raising the required funds for our Special Ops scholarship fund.
Well, I can only sit on the sidelines for so long…I do not have a bib for Boston, but I will be running 13.1 in Boston’s Run to Remember at the end of May. It will be a fitting way to honor Glen, our fallen heroes and continue to raise money for this cause that means so much to me and Tom.
Your contributions are changing the careers of several US soldiers and making a direct impact on their families. Please take a minute to listen to the words of one of our recent Scholars, Ian who grew up here on the cape. Ian is just one of the many reasons we keep growing this foundation. Not only are we helping members of Glen’s “brotherhood” but we are keeping his spirit alive.
Thank you for considering a donation to the Glen Doherty Memorial Foundation. Any amount matters to our recipients.
Warm regards and much love,
Kristin & Tom
