BENEFITING: HEARTBEAT SERVING WOUNDED WARRIORS
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2011
I'm running my first marathon on November 6, 2011 and would like to honor those that serve our country by raising money on their behalf. I will be donating your financial support to the Wounded Warriors Project. The WWP is dedicated to helping injured service members through raising public awareness of the needs of our soldiers and to provide direct assistance and support to foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded warriors in this nation's history. (www.woundedwarriorproject.org).
My husband is a passionate soldier who has devoted the past 6 years of his life to our country. His faith in humanity is driven by compassion, empathy, and morality exemplified in the people around us. He will be serving his 2nd tour overseas soon. He will be sacrificing family gatherings, familiarity, routine, and the security of "home"--- I will be thinking of him during my run and will FINISH because of him.
Please support my cause. Thank you in advance.
