I am proud and honored to be running the Boston Marathon in April of 2018 on The Military Friends Foundation Team. As many of you know, I set a goal to run a 5k in each of the 50 states for 50 different charities. I was able to complete that goal in April of 2017 and am so happy and excited to be running on one year later for this amazing charity. In running for these charities, I can say for sure that the military are so grateful for every penny they receive. This charity is there for those warriors and those families who have made the sacrifice to serve our country during and following their deployments. My biggest hero, is my big brother Nick serving our country and based in Catania, Italy. (We miss him so much). I also have a cousin Luke serving in the United States Navy, a cousin Mason serving in the Illinois National Guard, my Auntie Lynn who served in the United States Air Force, and My Papa Lyle Dahms who served in the United States Army and my Grandfather George Shashaty Sr. who served in the United States Army. My Great Uncle Elias Shashaty paid the ultimate sacrafice on the beaches of Normandy. Please help me out in reaching that goal of $10,000.00 .
