December is often called “the Season of giving,” but why wait two more months? The Marine Corps Marathon is on Halloween this year, and you have a chance to give a “treat” to someone in costume. Are you confused yet?
A friend of mine forwarded the donation page of one of the runners (one of her friends) who is offering to run in a dress in this years marathon in exchange for reaching a goal of $2,000 in donations. The money is being raised to support the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund. As stated on the donation page:
The Semper Fi Fund provides financial assistance and quality of life solutions for Marines, Sailors and other military personnel assigned to Marine Forces, injured in post 9-11 combat, training, or with life threatening illnesses. Assistance is also provided to their families as they support their loved one.
The Semper Fi Fund was established in May 2004 by a group of Marine spouses who saw first hand the needs of our wounded. Since inception, they have been able to give out more than $36 million to service members and their families. But the need to support our service members continues to be large and ongoing! Please join me in supporting this noble mission by donating to my “Run for the Fund.”
The Semper Fi Fund is 501 (c) 3 Non-profit. All donations are tax-deductible.
So let’s help this Marine raise money to help those who placed themselves in harms way to preserve our way of life. No donation is too small, and it will go towards a worthy cause. To make a donation, follow this link. You will be redirected to the “Nolte’s Running Guard” team donation page.
Thank you in advance for your help.
