BENEFITING: TEAM RED WHITE & BLUE
EVENT DATE: May 26, 2013
Running for America!
Thank you very much for taking the time to check out our Memorial Day Marathon fundraising page! We are gearing up for our third year participating in the races in the beautiful Berkshires and are excited to get out on the trails, share some laughs with friends and families, and raise money for our new charity partner, Team Red, White & Blue! Team RWB is a veteran organization grounded in the mission to enrich the lives of veterans through social and physical reintegration into the community. We are thrilled to partner with this organization and admire their grassroots, holistic approach to providing veterans with support and encouragement as they return home from combat zones.
Sam's experience serving with the United States Army over the past few years has highlighted the bravery and selflessness military personnel exude through their service to our country. Unfortunately, for many, their service comes at a cost. Sam's deployments have opened our eyes to the day-to-day struggles, pain, and grief felt by our servicemen/women, and those close to them in the wake of battle-related injuries, post-traumatic stress, and loss of life. Recognizing the struggles our warfighters have reintegrating to life at home, Team RWB provides a supportive, constructive, and enlivened community to help in that transition.
We have been inspired by the overwhelming generosity many of our friends and families showed towards our marathon fundraising effort fin years past. Motivated by everyone's generosity, we are pushing ahead and hope to raise $5,000 before we partake in the Memorial Day Marathon races on May 25th and May 26th. We encourage you to visit the RWB website at http://teamrwb.org/ in order to better understand exactly how your contribution will assist this great organization.
