My 5th year of participating in the Marine Corps Marathon has arrived. I have decided to "NOT JUST RUN" this year, but to use this opportunity and give back to the ones that gave so much for us!
 
Having spent some time in the military myself, I feel strongly about supporting those that dedicated parts of their life to proudly serve our country, the ones that put their lives at risk to protect our freedom.
 
Did you know that Operation Iraqi Freedom alone resulted in 3,482 Deaths and 31,947 wounded soliders. Of the wounded over 3% lost a limb. This is just one of the many shocking statistics out there, but it certainly caught my eye (the whole research study). Needless to say, there is a desperate need for resources when it comes to aiding our returning veterans.
 
Having reviewed countless options, I have found that the Semper Fi fund aligns best with my fundraising goals.
 
Being one of the highest rated Non-Profit Organizations in the country, over 95% of their proceeds go towards serving their cause! The fund supports returning veterans and their families, no matter which branch of the military they belong to.

Thank you for helping me give back to the ones that served our country, the ones that protect our freedom on a daily basis....

Semper Fidelis!
