THE STORY:

As a member of Team USO, I am raising money to make a positive difference in the lives of our troops and their families. I may not be able to personally donate millions, but I am demonstrating my commitment to the cause by dedicating my marathon training to the Team and spreading the word about the USO to my network, in an effort to raise money and awareness.

The USO is committed to sharing a touch of home with our troops wherever they serve, so I think about it this way…If I can raise $10 more dollars, a little girl can talk to her dad in Afghanistan for 10 more minutes on his birthday….If I can run 1 more mile, a mom can read to her son via teleconference before bed tonight, etc. I don’t know the exact figures, but I do know that every mile I run and every I dollar raise will directly support this cause. When my body feels like it can’t go another step, I think of the troops and what they go through every day, and another mile or two doesn’t seem so bad. By getting out of my comfort zone, I am working to make the lives of those deployed more comfortable. Every ache and pain, every leg cramp….is completely worth it.
