BENEFITING: The Glen Doherty Memorial Foundation
ORGANIZER: The Glen Doherty Memorial Foundation
EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2015
Here I am doing something I never imagined doing. Running a marathon. Running a marathon has never been on my bucket list. But I would do virtually anything for GDMF.
When GDMF entered the NYC marathon, the bibs went fast! I was the self appointed Team cheerleader, fundraiser and doer of any job needed. But when one of our team members (my sister in law) announced her pregnancy, I did what any auntie would do...and I offered to run in her place! So now I am training, nervous, excited and stepping up for Glen.
GDMF has given me a way to stay connected to Glen, one of the best people I have ever known. His absence has left a hole in many lives. Through GDMF an opportunity has been created to help men and women like him. Special Ops put their lives on the line for the safety of others. GDMF helps Special Ops and their families through providing scholarships. In the past two years we have been able to support more than ten scholars.
For the next few months I will work as hard as I can for Glen; with him in my ear and my heart. Thank you for joining the journey and the cause. Any donation amount will be greatly appreciated and will get you a hug when I see you!
