Welcome to my fundraising page for the 41st Marine Corps Marathon 2016!!! I am thrilled to be a member of Team Marine Parents and help support the Marines and their families who sacrifice so much to help keep us all safe!
This will be my 2nd marathon ever, and first Marine Corps Marathon!! I started to enjoy running and training when I started college. As a nursing major at Northeastern, running as provided me with a great way to relieve stress and remain active while in school. I will be graduating from nursing school May 2016, and figured the best way to celebrate was to run another marathon!!
After completing my first marathon in Chicago last year, I realized how much joy comes from finishing a big race. It is a great accomplishment and something to be proud of, and it boosts your self-confidence. I really felt like I had done something that day after finishing.
I have decided to run my second marathon in support of Team Marine Parents, not because I have a personal connection to the Marines, but because of my great admiration for the Marines and what they do to support and protect our country.
MarineParents.com, Inc., was founded nationally on January 21, 2003 to provide support, information, and services to Marines and their family members, and create opportunities for the public to support our troops through the organization's outreach programs. In over 13 years of service, Marine Parents has made a huge impact in support of Marines, military personnel, and their family members.
I am so happy to support this organization to continue to provide the support that is so necessary in improving the everyday lives of our Marines.
Please consider donating today, and helping me reach my fundraising goal of $500!
