BENEFITING: The USO
EVENT DATE: Sep 17, 2011
This will be the thrid year that I've run a race during the USAF Marathon. In 2009 I ran the 10K, the longest race I'd run at that time. Last year I ran the Half Marathon, which I will run again.
Each year I ran, I saw enlisted men and women running in fatigues and backpacks, and thought it would only be fitting to fundraise for the USO.
If just 20 of my friends donate $2 per mile that I will run (13.1 miles), we'll hit my goal of $500 to help "lift the spirits of America’s troops and their families", "until everyone comes home".
