BENEFITING: TEAM RED WHITE & BLUE
EVENT DATE: Oct 30, 2016
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.
