BENEFITING: Fisher House Foundation, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Mar 17, 2013
I've never run a marathon. Or even a half marathon. Truth be told, I'm not entirely sure I can run a marathon. But if anything will keep me going, it's knowing that thousands of people are depending on me crossing that finish line.
I'd love for you to be one of those people.
I'd love for us to raise a giant chunk of cash together, and hand it off to a charity. Fisher House is a great organization that provides support to military families in need. When soldiers return home, they often must travel far and wide for specialized medical care. Fisher House runs a network of "comfort homes" where veteran's families can stay for free and be close by during these stressful times. They're a 4-star charity on CharityNavigator.com and come highly recommended from the veterans I know.
Here's a proposal: If you donate $26 (a buck for every mile), I promise I will finish.
