BENEFITING: USO of Central and Southern Ohio
ORGANIZER: USO of Central and Southern Ohio
EVENT: Team USO
I'm so excited to run for a third time in the AF Marathon! This year I am running the 1/2 marathon! This year I also want to do some good for the community while I run. I'm running for the USO because this is an organization that puts so much into the military community and genuinely puts military families first. Whenever I fly, I go straight to the USO because they are the only comfort in the airport. I've volunteered at another USO while I was doing temporary duty and in the two months I was there they did so many activities for the military families I couldn't volunteer for them all. Whenever a new trainee got to the airport and didn't know who to call or where to go, the USO had a list of resources and knew exactly who to call for each group.
This year USO-CSO will open a lounge for the airmen and families right at the home of the AF Marathon Wright Patterson Air Force Base, where I hope to get stationed to get my masters! Here's to a great group continuing to do great things in the community!
Thanks for your support and here's more information on the group:
The USO of Central & Southern Ohio (USOCSO) is a private, nonprofit organization whose mission is to support military service men and women in 55 counties in Central and Southern Ohio, Northern Kentucky and four counties in West Virginia.
Life for our American troops and their families is filled with challenges...whether it's dealing with a new deployment, transitioning from service or coping with physical and psychological wounds. The USO-CSO is always by their side!
As a nonprofit, non-government agency, the USOCSO relies on fundraising efforts like Team USO and the generosity of donors to support programs and services designed to meet the everchanging needs of troops and their families. Additionally, the USOCSO regularly provides morale, welfare and recreation-type services to our men and women in uniform and their families including members of Ohio National Guard and Reserve Units, Active Duty airmen and families at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base (Dayton) and other Family Readiness and Warrior Support for all branches of the U.S. Military.
