Valor Run for Wounded Wear

BENEFITING: WOUNDED WEAR

THE STORY:

“Many have made the ultimate sacrifice, including more than 150 women who have given their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan—patriots whose sacrifices show that valor knows no gender.” President Barack Obama, 24 January 2013

Valor Run honors those women, now 160, who made the ultimate sacrifice in Iraq and Afghanistan.

For as long as this country has been fighting wars, at home or abroad, women have been injured and killed in combat zones. The Women in Military Service for America Memorial honors those women who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom by keeping their stories alive. Wounded Wear supports Gold Star families who face a lifetime of coping with a tragic, though honorable, loss of life – continuing on without wives, daughters, sisters, mothers.*

While the primary purpose of this run is to raise awareness of the many women who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country, it is also a fundraiser for the Women’s Memorial and for Wounded Wear. My goal is to raise $10,000 for the Women’s Memorial and $25,000 for Wounded Wear.

I had my first contact with these organizations this year. Those engagements, coupled with an innate craving for a challenge, generated the concept for Valor Run. The run will cover 160 miles in 160 hours (approximately 6 ½ days). I plan to run 25 miles a day for 6 days and 10 miles on the last day. The run will begin at Wounded Wear in Chesapeake, VA and end at the Women’s Memorial in Arlington, VA. Every mile will be dedicated to one of the women who died in Iraq or Afghanistan. I hope that many people will join me on Valor Run – whether just for a mile or for several more than that. If you can’t get to the mid-Atlantic, run with me virtually.

I am not an ultra-marathoner. I am not a marathoner. I am an average runner who will spend 9 months training for this event, supported by my family and friends. I served in Afghanistan from 2011-2012 and consider myself very fortunate to be among those who returned unharmed to their families.
