This is my second annual holiday fundraiser to help raise money for Boots on the Ground . Boots on the Ground is an orginization based on Long Island, that helps veterans in need by providing a food pantry to help the hungry, assists with finding housing for Veterans, Toy drives for Veterans families during the holiday, putting together care packages for deployed troops, and much more.
I volunteer every so often helping this orginization when I have a Tuesday night off, and have seen first hand the help they provide for our veterans.
From 12/26/2018 to 1/1/2019, I have registered for the Savage 7 50k Challenge in Ocala, Florida. To finish this challenge I must run 7 50ks(31.08 miles) in 7 consecutive days, totalling 217.56 miles. I will run this series wearing a 45 pound ruck, and carrying an American Flag to raise money to help Boots on the Ground continue their mission.
All registration costs are covered, all travel arrangements have been made. All of the proceeds from this fiundraiser will be going to Boots on the Ground.
