A rather amazing group of friends has convinced me that this event is not only something I should participate in (not a tough sell) but something that I could finish (mostly functional). As a civilian, I will be doing the event without the 40+ pounds of gear First Responder participants will be wearing. It is sure to be a humbling experience.
Thirteen years of my life were spent as the wife of a police officer and together we created three remarkable children. My life now includes a firefighter who has three remarkable children of his own. If you had asked me twenty-five years ago, there was no way I would have pictured where I am now... Blessed to be surrounded both personally and professionally by those who have chosen to spend their life serving and protecting their community. It is a unique life and admittedly not always an easy one but I would not trade it.
If you can help me reach my fundraising goal by donating any amount, it is greatly appreciated. If not, no worries, you can still help by sharing this link. Thank you!
