BENEFITING: FOLDS OF HONOR FOUNDATION

EVENT: 2014 Williams Route 66 Marathon

EVENT DATE: Nov 23, 2014

Maxx Crawford

THE STORY:

The 2014 Rt 66 Marathon will be my fourth marathon. One could say that I'm a veteran when it comes to running. I understand the dedication it takes, the pain it will cost me, and what awaits at the finish line.

When I was registering for this year’s race, I saw the option to fundraise my entry fee and it hit me – completing this run could benefit more than myself.

After registering as a fundraiser, I was asked to select from the official charity partners with the RT66M. This lead to the happy discovery that the Folds of Honor was one of those select organizations.

Of the one million-plus dependents adversely affected by deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, nearly nine out of 10 do not qualify for federal scholarship assistance. The Folds of Honor seeks to meet this need by providing annual educational scholarships to the military families of those who have been killed or disabled while in active duty. These help support private education tuition, tutoring and educational summer camps for children K-12, as well as higher education tuition assistance for spouses and children.

The Folds of Honor is an organization that I am closely tied to. I work at Brothers & Company, an ad agency in Tulsa, Oklahoma. One of the cornerstones of the company has been to dedicate all of our resources to the Folds of Honor – all without sending them a single bill. I've had the opportunity and the honor to get to donate some of my time at work to working on their online presence. I want to give back to them and you can help.

I’m asking you to donate to my cause. I’ll run 26.2 miles to prove to myself, the other runners and their families and friends what the Folds means to me. Thank you for your support.

– Maxx Crawford
