THE STORY:

Hello everyone!  This website is now live as of 9/27/16.

The goal is to raise $2,000 by the end of March.  Semper Fi is one of the best non profit organizations in terms of efficiency with their dollars, and their cause of helping those that helped protect our great country (more info below).

Please help me raise money for a great cause, and support my first, and most likely, only marathon I ever run!  

MY GOAL:  I have run 14 miles in 2 hours (October 2015).  This is a very difficult marathon due to hills and wind.  My goal is to finish the 26.2 miles  in 4 hours and 30 minutes.  I will be training with my girlfriend, Amanda, who will be running a marathon in Paris three weeks before mine, so PLENTY of motivation!

JOIN ME - If you have ever thought of doing a marathon before, DO IT NOW!!  You aren't getting any younger, and the more, the merrier!  This is known as a top 20 marathon in the world due to it's beauty.

WHY RUN 26.2 MILES?   Only 0.5% of Americans have ever run a marathon.  I love the fact that it will be more difficult MENTALLY than it will be physically to do this. Pushing my mind to push my body further (much further!) than I would ever want to go.  AND it is supposed to be a top 20 location in the world to do a marathon.  AND it is for charity and goes to a great cause!  AND I am only doing this thing once, and I am not getting any younger, truly, so I better do it now and cross it off the bucket list.

ABOUT THE CHARITY:

The Semper Fi Fund and America’s Fund provide immediate financial assistance and lifetime support to post-9/11 wounded, critically ill and injured members of all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces, and their families, ensuring that they have the resources they need during their recovery and transition back to their communities. Since establishing the Semper Fi Fund in 2004, we’ve issued more than 106,000 grants, totaling more than $120 million in assistance to over 15,000 of our heroes and their families.


The Semper Fi Fund has been awarded the highest ratings from watch dog groups: A+ Top Rated Charity from CharityWatch, and we are one of only three veteran nonprofits to receive this rating in recent years; and 4 Stars from Charity Navigator a rating only given to 4% of all charities. We maintain an extremely low overhead - 6% and we provide rapid assistance with no red tape.
