This is our 5th anniversary running the prestigious New York City Marathon & Team GDMF NYC needs your support! We have ambitious goals for our annual fundraising in 2019 to keep up with the demand for our scholarships. This spring we received 37 applications - our largest pool of scholarship candidates in our 7 years of operation. Our reputation is growing within the Special Operations community as a reliable resource for soldiers looking to make a career change. Your contributions to our runners will be used to support GDMF Scholars like David Nicastro.
"I felt stuck overseas. I was working in a war zone at least six months a year to support my wife and three children. I did this for over ten years. I spent more than half of my kid's lives overseas and it was physically and emotionally taxing in every way. I would not have been able to transition from work overseas to The MA State Police without the help of the Glen Doherty Foundation. With the financial support of the Foundation I was able to come home and complete the MA State Police Academy and I am now serving the State of Massachusetts. My family life is much stronger as I see my wife and kids every day. I never have to miss another birthday or bedtime story or school play or Christmas again. I would not be where I am today without the help of the Glen Doherty Foundation. The Foundation brings Men and Women back home and gives them a chance to follow their dreams."
