BENEFITING: OKLAHOMA CITY NATIONAL MEMORIAL FOUNDATION
EVENT: Oklahoma City Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Apr 27, 2014
On April 19, 1995 a cowardly act of terrorism destroyed precious lives and changed Oklahoma, as well as the rest of the United States, forever. I was living in Colorado at the time, was at work in a call center in Boulder when a bomb shook and ripped through the Murrah building in Oklahoma City. I had no idea at that point that 5 years later, I would meet the love of my life who felt the shaking from his childhood home some 30 miles south.
This is my first time participating in the OKC Memorial 5k, prompted to do so by a dear friend whose parents-in-law were among the first responders. She's running the marathon, her first, and you can read her story here: Marathon Monday: Why This Race?
Please join me in contributing love and financial support to this amazingly strong community to help further the progress of their healing.
