The 75th Ranger Regiment embodies a proud and distinguished heritage. The Regiment has been on continual deployment, fighting our nation’s enemies since 9/11. The Warriors of 1st Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment are involved in training or combat operations currently in three continents. The Battalion has over 20 combat rotations. Its mission: to defeat the most evil enemies of our world. Young Rangers have grown up in this Battalion experiencing nothing but combat operations and fierce training. They leave their loved ones, risking life and limb to make this Nation safe for our families. They are part of the Special Operations Command (SOCOM) and continue to be at the tip of the spear in guarding our freedoms. On January 9, 2016, I will run on the grueling trails of the Harbison 50K Ultramarathon in Columbia, South Carolina. In proud support and in memoriam, I will run a 53K…1KM dedicated to each of the 53 Rangers who made the ultimate sacrifice and are honored at the 1st Ranger Battalion Memorial. As a former member of this elite unit and Board Member of the 1st Ranger Battalion Sua Sponte Foundation (SSF), I am asking for your support and donation. The SSF is a 501c3, non-profit, tax deductible, all volunteer organization which gives back to these heroic Rangers and their families. Your donation will also help maintain the 1st Ranger Battalion Memorial. The goal is to raise $20,000 by Jan 31– achievable with your help!
