My name is Christi DeSimone and I am a VERY proud mother of a Marine (my son) and soon will be mother to 2 Marines (my daughter). I could not be more proud of my children's decision to serve our Country and to chose the most Elite branch, The U.S. Marines!!
In my free time, I volunteer with Marine Parents. My son started out Kilo Co and got injured. Those Kilo volunteers and all the Kilo Family kept me afloat until he healed and was picked up with Lima Co. I started volunteering with Lima Co as a Platoon Parent. I was then asked if I would like to be a Group Guide. Of course I said yes and now I am Group Leader. I could not think of a better way to give back to all the volunteers who had my back and got us through my Marine's 8 month boot camp stay. I love to pay it forward helping all the new families who's son's are training to be the best of the best, the most Elite....a U.S. Marine!!
Last year I was asked if I would like to run the Marine Corps Marathon. I laughed....I am not a runner. No way, no how!! Well, I did it. I crossed that finish line and got the amazing medal!! It was not easy and certainly not pretty, but I did it!! Last years race was dedicated to my son, this year if for my daughter!!
Thank you so much to everyone who has supported me and my children in the past year and half. Thank you so much for all your motivating, encouraging and supportive words. I can't thank you all enough!
Please help me raise my fundraising goal. I can't do this without your help! Thank you in advance and OOHRAH!!
