Matt Breuer's Fundraising Page

I'm honored to be part of the Lead the Way Fund team running this year's New York City Marathon to raise funds for such a noble cause.

The Lead the Way Fund was created to honor Sgt. James J. "Jimmy" Regan.  His story is one worth telling.  A few weeks before graduating from Duke in 2002, Jimmy led the Blue Devil lacrosse team to a conference championship by scoring 4 goals against rival Virginia.  Upon graduation, Jimmy had the opportunity to attend law school or work on Wall Street.  Instead, with the terrorist attacks of September 11th fresh in his mind, Jimmy enlisted in the U.S. Army and volunteered to serve in the Rangers, the Army's elite combat unit.  After 2 combat tours in Afghanistan and 1 in Iraq, Jimmy was killed while on patrol in Iraq.  He was 26 years old.  From everything I've heard and read about Jimmy, it is hard to imagine a better friend or teammate.

Like Jimmy, I played lacrosse at Duke, where I endured the dreaded pre-season training runs Coach Pressler had in store for us each year.  I am not much of a runner, but the courage displayed by Jimmy Regan and all the Rangers serving in harm's way around the world provides tremendous motivation to get running each day and to ultimately cross the finish line on November 7th.

To learn more about Jimmy Regan or the Lead the Way Fund, you can visit  If donating is not an option, I encourage you to spread the word about Jimmy Regan and the Lead the Way Fund.

Thanks for your support - -and please forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate to such a great and noble effort!
