I am the proud Bonus-MoM and cousin of two outstanding Marines! My passion for running stems from the OKC Memorial Marathon (half marathon) and the U.S. Air Force Marathon (half marathon). I love running in both events, so when my son and cousin graduated Marine Corps boot camp last year, I thought it would only be fitting to run the U.S. Marine Corps Marathon. My goal was to run the full, but unfortunately, I got injured and had to scale back to the 10K.
Regardless of the distance I am still running for my two Marines as a tribute to how incredibly proud of them I am and how much they both mean to me! Running in the MCM 10K is just one more way I can show my support!
The volunteers at MarineParents have been so helpful to us! I wanted to return the love and support we were given, so I too, became a volunteer with MarineParents. Funding for Marine Parents goes towards so many wonderful outreach programs that benefit Marines and their families. These programs wouldn’t be possible without selfless donors like you!! Thank you for taking time to read my story and help me reach my $500 goal for such an amazing program! OORAH!!
