|Horing their sacrifices. Supporting their needs.|
As the War against Terrorism continues, many more of our Nation’s finest have willingly put themselves in harm’s way to protect the United State’s shores by defeating the enemy on theirs. The result of their bravery is that more than 3,000 have been killed and 23,000 wounded, and these numbers are certain to increase as the war continues.
In an effort to support our fellow brothers and sisters in arms, we have initiated a fundraising drive to support those wounded in combat. All donated money will be used to support the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund. This is a non-profit organization that helps support wounded Marines, Sailors, Soldiers, and their families during the difficult rehabilitation period. Please review their website and read some of the stories for more details: http://www.semperfifund.org/
We are a group of Marine, Army, Navy and Air Force personnel currently assigned to Quantico, Virginia. We will be participating in marathons, half-marathons, 10Ks and 5Ks between 10 February and 7 May 2007. There is no single event that we all will participate in and we do not receive any of the money raised from this fundraiser. The purpose of our efforts is to help increase awareness of the difficulties wounded veterans may face and to help them and their families wile they recover from their injuries.
Our goal is to raise $100,000. We will meet, and likely exceed, this goal with your support. Please give what you can and forward this website to family, friends, and business associates, as well as any military members and their families.
We are not asking for your charity; we are asking for your support which is a small price to pay for the men and women so willing to give the ultimate sacrifice in support of our country and your freedom.
*Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support our fundraising efforts.
**Donations are tax-deductible and you will receive a receipt for your records.
***Please forward this to your friends, family, and anyone else who understands that freedom does not exist without sacrifice.
