EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
Having been at the tip of the spear, fighting the war on terrorism on the ground in Afghanistan with the 2nd Ranger Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, it is my duty to protect the freedom and sovereignty of this great land as well as represent those lost and injured as a result of terror attacks around the world. After the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings, I have felt a personal responsibility to run the Boston Marathon, not only for those lost and injured in the Boston Marathon attacks, but also for my lost brothers in Afghanistan.
Horizons for Homeless Children has given me this opportunity -the opportunity to run a race for my country, for my lost brothers, for those effected by the Boston marathon bombings, and for the children of our future, including my son. Horizon’s is leading the fight to help alleviate the trauma and stress of homelessness on both children and their families by providing world-class early education, vital opportunities for play, support for parents, and crucial advocacy on behalf of some of the most marginalized citizens throughout Massachusetts, while their cutting edge research and program model is impacting organizations around the country. I am so honored and excited to partner with Horizons to raise awareness and funds to allow these children, who have experienced the most devastating circumstances, to once again experience the innocence and joy of childhood.
I am incredibly grateful for your support and truly honored to run the 2017 Boston Marathon for those lost and injured by terrorism and for the amazing children and families supported by Horizons. Thank you!!!
