"As a military brat, I come from generations of Army, Navy and Air Force servicemen and women dating as far back as the Civil War. My Father and my hero, a Retired MCPO of the United States Navy, instilled core values in me learned through service and sacrifice. The military is a part of me, the very ideals and beliefs upon which this country was founded resonate deep within me and now it's my turn to "serve".
"The discipline, dedication and self sacrifices I have witnessed my entire life, led me to this moment in time to step up and Lead. After witnessing the brave and unselfish acts of valor and heroism among our armed forces returning from war, my heart bled for my "brothers" and "sisters". These brave men and women who fought for this country were returning home with life sustaining injuries, physical challenges, loss of limbs, mental and emotional conflicts, self esteem, self worth, and self image issues. Many programs out there address the outside physical healing upon their return...but for me it's the inside heart, mind and soul of these men and woman that months, and even years later, still need healing.
"It's really that simple, this is about remembering them LONG after the homecoming parade, and teaching them that their lives have meaning, purpose, value and that they are not alone in their struggles, and their injuries don't define them. Fundraising for the PVA is an opportunity to empower and inspire veterans across the globe.
As an athlete and ultra endurance runner - every step, every mile of the 26.2 mile Marine Corp Marathon will be for those who cannot walk, much less run. For those brave men and women who have given so much for the freedoms I hold. Please join me in giving back!!! Make a donation today!
Much love, light and respect always,
