In deciding to run the Half Marathon again I had two goals in mind 1.) get a better time than last year lol and 2.) Run for a Reason! What could be better than running a race and raising some money for an awesome organization that benefits so many of our veterans! Below is a little bit about Team Red White & Blue...

"Team Red, White and Blue is a National Non Profit and our mission is to enrich the lives of America's Veterans through physical and and social activities. We help veterans and their families be an active and uplifting part of their local communities through physical fitness events/groups; social activities and service projects." Check them out at www.teamrwb.org
I decided to run and raise money for this team because of how much I appreciate and respect our veterans, but also for my grandparents; my grandpa a Marine who fought in Korea and my grandma who was a Dental Nurse in the Navy. Organizations like this make it possible for veterans, old and young, to have support when coming home and reintegrating into daily life. Truly appreciative of everything this organization does for our veterans.
So if you can find the time, and some extra cash, join me this year and help me reach my fundraising goal! I know that the veterans, and myself would be truly grateful! :)
