Note from Linda:
Great news! I am running this 26.2 Mile Marine Corps Marathon in our Nation’s Capital on 28-Oct, 2018, and I am so honored to be one of 50 members of TEAM USO of NC!
My Marine Dad in Heaven would be so proud of me since he is the one who taught me how to persevere and stand tall. This is for you Daddy!
My brother, "Tom" is also a Marine. I am so very proud of him as he has always shown me strength and perseverance also.
I am also a proud Mom of an amazing Airman. My son, "Rob" has served 15 years so far in the United States Air Force. I love him so much and I’m so very proud of him. His strength and perseverance in everything he does also amazes me.
So with all this said, I am honored to help raise funds to help support the USO of NC, who in turn helps better the lives of our men and women serving our Nation and their families. I am so excited to earn my USO of NC CHARITY BIB so I can run this Marine Corps Marathon with the TEAM!
Please help support me on this mission and give the USO of NC your best gift!

How you can help
By supporting our Marine Corps Marathon runners, you will make a difference in the lives of our service members and their families. The USO of NC is a 501c3 nonprofit organization, not funded by the national USO, relying on the generosity of neighbors and corporate partners, and individuals like you and me.
Together, we strengthen our service members and their families by keeping them connected to family, home and country with 600,000 service connections each year. Your gift provides items like hygiene kits to deploying military and programs that help families keep in touch and reconnect. A gift of any size makes a tremendous impact on our military and their families; 93 cents of every dollar goes back into our programs. Learn more at uso-nc.org.
