The R4V Marine Corps Marathon Team is on a mission to create life-changing opportunities for wounded veterans!
Why I Run:
I've joined the R4V Marine Corps Marathon Team because I want to do something for the men and women who have made such incredible sacrifices so that I may live free - and because I want to do everything to assist in their rehabilitation and reintegration. Since October 2001, over two million U.S. troops have deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. The men and women serving in these wars are returning to their loved ones forever changed. I am looking forward to running for them.
Why Team Racing for Veterans?
Team R4V creates life-changing opportunities for wounded veterans by promoting awareness, supporting rehabilitation, and empowering individuals to follow through on a path of healing with a sense of pride and accomplishment. By taking a holistic approach to getting veterans “back in the game,” Team R4V is able to make a substantial impact on the physical, mental and emotional health of veterans and their families.
Why You Should Support Me
Team R4V will use funds collected from the Marine Corps Marathon Race to provide support for America's heroes. Because we can give back to wounded warriors by simply running in a race, because we have chosen to help hundreds of veterans through a contribution to Team R4V, we are now getting closer to the hour when a wounded veteran can say "I can live again!" Any amount, great or small, helps to make a difference in the lives of the U.S. service members that have sacrificed so much. I appreciate your support and look forward to letting you know how I do.
This will be my 3rd marathon, but my first race running in support of our Veterans. I am very excited to run the Marine Corps Marathon on Sunday, October 27, 2013.
