I ran Boston Marathon in 2013, except the last half mile. Carlos Arredondo was near the finish line helping Jeff Bauman and other Boston Marathon survivors, while I was still trying to figure out why they wouldn't let us finish. The memory of those terrible hours is still fresh in my memory. I'm doing this fundraiser not only because Carlos is a hero of mine (which he is), but also because I want to raise awareness about suicide prevention. Our heroes, the wounded veterans come home with physical, emotional and mental injuries. We need to be cognizant of the challenges they take and we need to serve them better by understanding what they need and how they can become a healthy member of the society in civilian life. All donations from my fundraiser will go to serve the cause for suicide prevention programs.
