A Great Honor!

I got an e-mail from my dad this morning, letting me know that he has made a donation, sponsoring $10.00 per mile of my marathon in my name, for his favorite charity. It's not the one I've started fund raising for, but had I heard about this one, I would have been really interested immediately.

So, $262.00 will go to the Marine Corps-Law Enforcement Foundation upon the completion of my marathon. I am so honored! 

This foundation raises money for the higher education or special medical needs costs of children whose fathers are killed in the line of duty, either as Marines or Law Enforcement officers.

Please check out the website of this wonderful foundation, because I can't convey what a great honor this is on my own!
