Hi! I’m Linda Beduhn. My son became a U.S. Marine on January 15, 2016. When he left for bootcamp at MCRD San Diego, I learned about Marine Parents. I joined the Kilo Company Facebook page which turned out to be a blessing in so many ways. Boot camp was a very difficult time…not seeing my son for 3 months and the only form of communication was by written letter. But the other Marine mothers on the Facebook pages of Marine Parents helped everyone so much. We had a “connection” to our soon-to-be Marines and to other parents who were going through the same thing.
I knew I wanted to “give back” in some way so when I found Team Marine Parents, I knew that is what I was going to do. I have trained and raised funds and awareness for a charity (American Diabetes Association) in the past. I am friends with the people who were involved to this day. When I told those friends I was planning to join Team Marine Parents, they were eager to support me.
I can’t run any more due to knee issues but learned to race-walk. I participate in many events throughout the year at different distances. The half marathon being my favorite I would say. And so I am race-walking the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon in Duluth, MN, this summer as a member of Team Marine Parents.
I am very excited to be raising funds/awareness as a Team Marine Parent! Please join me in reaching my goal of $1000 and donate today to support the outreach programs of Marine Parents!
