*I read the book "Lone Survivor" while my husband was in Navy Boot Camp & the story of Marcus Luttrell and his SEAL team has stuck with me since. He is a role model of heroism & courage that made me that much more proud that my husband was going to emerge boot camp as a US Navy Hospital Corpsman (didn't hurt that they share the same first name & Texas roots!). I even got the chance to meet Marcus when he was signing his book at the NEX a few months ago and I was extremely honored to be in the presence of a true hero. The campaign provides an easy and tangible way for Americans to show appreciation for troops (both past and present), cultivate awareness of the challenges they face upon return and raise funds which are granted to military programs meeting these physical and emotional needs. Please join me in thanking those men & women who put their lives on the line everyday of service and after by participating with me or donating!*
Your participation in Boot Run Houston will provide funding for the Boot Campaign’s wounded hero programs and the Village of Sabray—the community that protected Marcus Luttrell from enemy forces during Operation Red Wings.
Boot Run Houston allows you to run at your own pace. Runners can choose to register for the Half Marathon or 5K. Make a statement by running in your Boots! You can order a pair of the Boot Campaign’s signature “give back” combat boots on www.BootCampaign.com. Proceeds from your boot purchase are used to back the Boot Campaign’s programs caring for the growing number of wounded military personnel.
