Why are we running for Raising Raiders?
Raising Raiders is a foundation founded by Marine Special Operators wives to help support the MARSOC community. Raising Raiders goal is to support and strengthen the families by developing them as a family and a community. With support such as the Raising Raiders Annual Initiative Grant, and the year round Always Behind You grants, Kids Clubs and gifting Sterling Silver cuffs to the families of the MARSOC fallen; these are only a few ways Raising Raiders continues to enhance the community daily.
We aren’t the founders of Raising Raiders. We are simply volunteers that believe in a cause. As the friends, family and community we are what the charity is about. We can’t always go through some of the hardships that our Raiders go through we want to show them that we’re here for them and we are strong. Running for Raising Raiders is our way of supporting the charity by pushing ourselves physically. We are asking for donations to help motivate us as runners and the MARSOC families. We aren’t just running for today, we are running so that generations of MARSOC families after us will be taken care of.
Please help us reach our goal and run as a team for the Rock N' Roll Half Marathon & Marathon in Raleigh, North Carolina.
