THE STORY:

Hello,

I am the 4th guy on the right of this picture and back in 2004 I ran the Marine Corps Marathon with 3 good friends.  The guy right next to me named Rob called me up and said his mother recently passed from Luekemia and that he was going to run this race to remember her.  He asked if I wanted to run with him and I took the challenge.  Rob passed away a couple weeks ago and I am going to run this race partially to remember the guy who asked me to run it 10 years ago.

I am also running in rememberance of the 1st guy on the left named Bill.  He was a great Marine who I served with in Cherry Point, NC.  He passed away in 2007.

Finally, the 2nd picture I have on this page is of Cpl Chris Weaver.  He was a fraternity brother of mine.  He died during a patrol in Iraq in 2005 and he stills has a place in my heart anytime I hear of someone losing a loved one in the military.

Below is the charity group I am working with to help other military families.  I like this charity because it is local to me in Tampa, FL and because they support the Marine Corps.
