BENEFITING: TEAM RED WHITE & BLUE
EVENT DATE: Oct 30, 2016
I will be running the Marine Corps Marathon on October 30th in Washington D.C. as a Charity Bib runner for Team RWB and will be raising money along the way to support our military communities. I am a spouse of a current member of Minnesota's Air National Guard. My husband deployed to Afghanistan in 2011, which was the hardest year of our life together. After he returned I knew I wanted to give back so I enrolled in graduate school for my master's in Social Work so I can work with military members and families as they reintegrate back into the civilian life. I am so very proud of my spouse and hold all military individuals and families past, present and future with high regards for their service. It is an absolute pleasure to be a part of Team RWB as a member and as part of the Leadership Team. Think about a friend or family member you know, who has served our coutry, and donate in their honor. Every donation received is giving back to our military members. Thank you so much for your kind donations. #EagleUp
I am Running the Marine Corps Marathon and raising money for Team Red White and Blue.
I want to ensure that this organization is able to enrich veteran’s lives for a long time.
As a vet who had many emotional struggles throughout the years following my deployment to Afghanistan 04-05, this organization has really helped me become involved with something larger, something positive, and something to fill that void. I look forward to giving back to them as I raise funds on their behalf.
Each time I hear that 22 vets a day commit suicide; I realize that I was close to being one of those.
Before joining Team Red White and Blue I wasn’t sure where I was heading. It is sad to say but I had a void in my life. A void that the Army once filled and even though I had a wife, kids and a job that paid the bills. I was an Alcoholic and a Workaholic.
I needed to make a change before my lifestyle killed me.
Team Red White and Blue provided me with a group of motivated, passionate and positive people that wanted to help in any way they could. They truly help complete the vision of the person I want to be.
Team Red White and Blue continues to help me become the Husband, Father, and Soldier that I am today.
Because of you, I’m not going to be a statistic
Thank you for any support you can give.
