BENEFITING: TEAM RED WHITE & BLUE
EVENT DATE: Oct 30, 2016
I have the honor of being selected to run the 41st Marine Corps Marathon for Team RWB. This is my first full marathon and I can't think of a better orgainization to run it for.
As a Marine, this has been a long time dream of mine. One of my good friends and brothers during my time on active duty was on the Marine Corps marathon team. Listening to his experience made me want to run it someday.
It has become "some day." Not only do I have chance to fulfill my dream, it's a chance to to help others accomplish their goals... While running alongside some of the greatest human beings on earth.
Team RWB has given veterans the opportunity to come together and better themselves in a highly supportive environment. Many, including myself, have overcome HUGE obstacles. The support and camaraderie experienced through Team RWB has made "unobtainable" goals... OBTAINABLE for many veteran's. I'm very excited about this event. With your help and the help of Team RWB, I can accomplish a longtime goal while running in support of an amazing organization who does so much for veterans.
Thank you, in advance, for your donations. You're, truly, making a Marine's dream come true.
