GURNEE, IL United States
Stuff About Me:

We appreciate your support for ERIKA'S LIGHTHOUSE...  a terrific organization and  a very worthy cause.

We also appreciate your donation made through Team Ward - AIR FORCE (TW-AF)!!!  TW-AF is the father / son team of Tim Ward (AF-retired) and Kevin Ward (AFROTC @ GA Tech). Team Ward is a four (4) member team divided  by the Air Force / Navy rivalry which naturally begs for a challenge within this marathon challenge.  The "other guys" (Team Ward - Navy (TW-N)) consists of Kevin's brothers Patrick and Colin.   

Here's how our challenge works, and how you can help the team of your allegiance.  The final marathon time for each of the four Team Ward runners will be compared to the Boston Marathon qualifying time for their age group.  The individual runner will then get a score equal to the number of minutes faster (negative score) or slower (positive score) than their Boston qualifying time.  Adding the 2 team runners' scores together will determine the TW-Air Force and TW-Navy score, with the lowest score winning.

BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!   Each team will deduct ONE SECOND from their score for each dollar they raise through this website.  That means that the team raising the most funds would lower their final time (score) by one minute for every $60 raised over the other team.  

WHAT HAPPENS TO THE LOSERS?  IN THE END, THE LOSING TEAM WILL HAVE TO SWIM ACROSS THE WIDEST PART OF THE MOST DISGUSTING RETENTION POND IN AMERICA (Right behind our house), While the winning team gets to film this Swim-of-Shame for pride, honor, and social-media ridicule.

Team AIR FORCE is in full training mode, with Kevin leading the way in weekly mileage.  At our current pace, Team Ward - NAVY will need to raise about one billion dollars in order to make up the difference in time to catch AIR FORCE!

If you are inspired by the power, the roar and the awe of air superiority in action..... If you are fond of the Army and appreciate all that our aviators accomplish overhead to keep the skys safe above the battlefield.....   if you are truly an AMERICAN... then you want to donate to ERIKA'S LIGHTHOUSE through Team Ward - AIR FORCE!

Thank you for your support of ERIKA'S LIGHTHOUSE and also for Team Ward - AIR FORCE!      

Tim and Kevin
