BENEFITING: OKLAHOMA CITY NATIONAL MEMORIAL FOUNDATION
EVENT: Oklahoma City Marathon 2013
EVENT DATE: Apr 28, 2013
I'm officially going to be one of those annoying 'Donate to My Cause' people that send out countless emails begging for money. No not really....BUT I AM running in the Oklahoma City Memorial Half Marathon on Sunday, April 28 and am raising money for the cause. (I know...it's only a HALF marathon...but I'm lazy.)
The OKC Memorial Marathon raises money to support the OKC Bombing Memorial and Museum. The Memorial does not receive public funding and operates completely on donations.
Each April, the marathon raises thousands of dollars (I assume) and keeps the memorial site and museum staffed and opened throughout the year to be a single location for folks to learn about the April 19, 1995 bombing and remember the 168 victims that were killed, including my sister's two children.
