BENEFITING: ON BEHALF OF A GRATEFUL NATION INC
ORGANIZER: ON BEHALF OF A GRATEFUL NATION INC
EVENT DATE: Jun 01, 2013
When a friend asked me to run the Tough Mudder Boston 2013 to raise funds for the OnBehalf.Org charity, I thought that I would either have to be in great shape or crazy to do this. After three months of training and two weeks left until race day, I realized "Yup, I'm nuts!"
The reason I am running the Tough Mudder is not to prove that I am a weekend warrior, but to give back to the wounded men and women of our armed forces who volunteered to protect our great nation. They sacrificed so much of themselves for us. I believe there is no better way that I can honor those who were injured and those who paid the ultimate price so close to Memorial Day. Please join me in supporting the real warriors by making a donation.
I thank you in advance.

This is it. Team OnBehalf, the danger-facing, adventure-seeking, thrill-chasing wing of OnBehalf.org, is preparing to take on its biggest challenge to date: the 2013 Boston Tough Mudder, all to benefit our injured troops from Iraq & Afghanistan! Braving over 10 miles of icy water, unforgiving terrain, rope obstacles and actual ELECTRIC SHOCKS, we're earning every penny of your contributions the hard way. The very, very hard way.
What is OnBehalf.org? Founded by 4 US Army veterans in 2005, we're a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with one mission: to raise cash and professional services for wounded troops of Iraq & Afghanistan from New York and New England. As an all-volunteer, veteran-run NPO, we’ve raised over $40,000 for our guys and gals in uniform, mostly with action-packed races and fundraisers like this.
So far, 22 athletes from 5 states are taking the field at Gunstock Mountain Resort in Gilford, New Hampshire, on June 1 as part of Team OnBehalf. Given the extreme difficulty of this course and the commitment our runners have shown to our wounded troops, we’re setting an aggressive fundraising goal of $10,000.
Give something back to the men and women who gave so much and sponsor a Team OnBehalf runner today! Just click on the big orange DONATE button to get started. Many thanks!
