BENEFITING: Permission To Start Dreaming Foundation
Hi everyone! I'm running (well, some people call it "running") a half marathon on Sept. 27th in Gig Harbor. It's called "Race for a Soldier", and it raises funds for soldiers returning from combat who need mental health care. I ran last year's race alongside an active-duty army soldier! I quietly congratulated myself for finishing about 3 minutes ahead of him; but then I thought... HEY! He's wearing full combat gear, including his 60-pound pack and his boots! He ran in memory of a friend who'd committed suicide after coming home from Afghanistan. I guess you can tell I think this is a great cause, so if you feel so moved, please donate, and thanks!
