Col. Jon K. Rider, USMC (ret)
In Fall 2010, the Rider Family ran the Marine Marathon in honor of their father, Col. Jon K. Rider, USMC (ret), who had idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, a disease for which there is no cure.
This year, my husband and I are greatly honored to participate in the June 4th 2011 Camp Pendleton World Famous 10K Mud Run in honor of the Rider Family and Col. Rider. Col. Rider served a total of 27 years in the USMC and retired 1990 at the end of his command of the School of Infantry in Camp Pendleton!
The proceeds benefit the Coalition for Pulmonary Fibrosis, with the hope that a cure will one day be found and to support those who are living with the disease. Although this is a difficult time financially for many of us, please consider donating to this worthy cause.
