BENEFITING: INTREPID FALLEN HEROES FUND
EVENT DATE: May 27, 2012
Greetings Friends and Family!
Thank you very much for taking the time to check out my Memorial Day Marathon fundraising page!
This is my second year running the 10K for the Memorial Day Marathon Races in the beautiful Berkshires. Not only is this race conveniently located in our hometown, but the cause really hits home for my family and me.
My brother, Sam, has served in two deployments to Afghanistan with the United States Army. His bravery and service to our country throughout his two deployments has been a true inspiration to me. Unfortunately, for many, their service comes at a cost. Sam's deployments have opened my 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 need many of our veterans have for post-deployment care, the Russo/Holland team is dedicated to supporting an organization that does just that - the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund (IFHF).
The Memorial Day Marathon Committee is contributing a portion of the race proceeds to IFHF. Your donation will assist families who have lost a loved one, or Soldiers suffering severe physical or mental wounds from current combat operations. I encourage you to visit the IFHF website at http://www.fallenheroesfund.org/ in order to better understand exactly how your contribution will assist this great organization.
Please consider contributing to our effort by:
making a monetary donation through this website,
or even signing up for the race yourself!
