I am the proud daughter and granddaughter of army veterans who gave up parts of their lives and themselves to fight for their country. I made a promise to my dad when I graduated college that I would find ways to give back to veterans as they gave so much to me throughout my life. Fundraising for Hope for Warriors is one of the small ways I’d like to show my thanks.
Hope for the Warriors is a great non-profit organization that gives back to veterans by helping with their transition into civilian life, health and wellness, as well as fostering a sense of self and community.
I am running for the veterans too! This year I will be running the New York TCS Marathon. This will be my first time running in the NY Marathon (where I hope to PR?!) Having run a few marathons, I know it’s going to hurt running from Staten Island to the Bronx, but I just can’t wait!
I’ll be telling my story of fundraising and running for veterans on my Instagram @ArmyBratruns26 Give me a follow!
Any support or words on encouragement help!
