The Pat Tillman Foundation serves an outstanding cause in the name of a man who's story played a role in inspiring me to serve my community through the Massachusetts Army National Guard. I truly enjoyed my experience raising money as a part of Team Tillman for the 2015 Chicago Marathon and I want to bring that effort to my home state of Massachusetts for the 2019 Cape Cod Marathon on October 27th. My ask is modest - for the cost of a few minutes of your time and a cup of coffee, please consider donating to support the men and women who have served our country and who now seek to gain the skills and knowledge they need as future leaders in the public and private sector.
For your trouble, contributors to my cause are entitled to:
-Access to training plans, race day strategy, and nutrition tips for seasoned runners and beginners alike
-Access to raffles / giveaways for books, gift cards, and more
-"Recipe of the week" from Bedford, NH's own culinary sensation Linda Maddox
-Open invitation to train with me anytime and anywhere
