Dear friends and family,

CPT Jonathan Hoyle, Army (husband)
LTC Dennis Hall, Army (Dad)
VADM Donald Arthur, Navy (Dad)
LCDR Beverly Arthur, Navy (step-mom)
CAPT Mary Chaffee, Navy (step-mom)
1LT John Hoyle, Army (father-in-law)
CPT Justin Hoyle, Army (brother-in-law)
P02 Joseph Lowther, Coast Guard (uncle)
SGT Anthony Falk, Army (son of step-mom Lisa Falk)
Capt Thomas Hambidge, Marine Corps (son of step-mom Mary)
CPT Chris Hambidge, Army (son of step-mom Mary)
….and that’s just my immediate (albeit blended) family!! Many of these heroes are veterans of war, and I am eternally grateful to them for their bravery and service. I am especially thankful that they all came home in one piece.
Team Racing for Veterans (Team R4V) is a non-profit organization that creates life-changing opportunities for wounded, ill and injured veterans & service members by promoting awareness, supporting rehabilitation, and empowering veterans to follow through on a path of healing with a sense of pride and accomplishment. By providing a one-stop shop for all wounded veterans and service members' athletic needs, Team R4V is able to make a substantial impact on the minds, bodies, and souls of our American Heroes!
You may recall that throughout many years, I have consistently supported my friends and family’s fund raising efforts related to athletic endeavors. This is the first time I have asked for something in return. I am raising money for Team R4V in order to run the Marine Corps Marathon with my husband, an Operation Iraqi Freedom veteran and first time marathoner. Please consider supporting me, him, and all our heroes with a donation of any amount you are able. Please also consider donating to Jonathan’s fundraising effort as well: https://www.crowdrise.com/r4v2016marinecorpsmarathonand10kmteam/fundraiser/jonathanhoyle
PS - The deadline for donation is August 24th!
