THE STORY:

In 2005, the US Army unit, Big Windy (while deployed to Afghanistan), experienced a horrible accident with one of its helicopters, which resulted in the death of 5 of its crewmembers. The 13 passengers also lost their lives. The aircraft call sign: Windy25. Families were suddenly faced with the loss of their loved ones, and our unit was also left with a terrible reality that we had lost our beloved comrades-in-arms. We continued on with our mission, often a daunting load of combat requirements; but we did so with the resolve to honor the heroes of Windy25, keep their legacy alive, support their families and loved ones they left behind, and vow to continue to celebrate their lives every year.

This race is to raise awareness for the heroes and families who have lost their lives in combat. We would love for your running team to come out and support us. You can sign up at

http://team.taps.org/windy25

All proceeds will go to the charity, TAPS -- Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors -- a charity that helps families cope with the loss of their loved ones to military service.

On behalf of the Big Windy family, and the volunteers of TAPS., we would be thrilled for you to sign up, contribute, pledge, and run in the first-annual Windy25 Memorial 5K in Las Vegas, Nevada; Saturday, April 9th at 9am -- sponsored by the new Cosmopolitan Hotel!

We realize there are many wonderful charities and organizations to choose from and support, and we are would be grateful for you to choose to run and raise funds for TAPS on behalf of the Windy25 Memorial Fund!
