Next fall I will combine my love of running with the desire to help a local hero and his family. On Sunday, September 26, 2021 I will join a group of nearly 20 runners on Team HFOT in the BMW Berlin Marathon in Berlin, Germany. Yes, we're taking our cause international!
I’m committed to raising funds and awareness for Homes For Our Troops, a 501(c)(3) organization that builds and donates specially adapted custom homes for severely injured post-9/11 veterans, to help them to rebuild their lives. This is my 5th running event with this top rated 4-star charity since 2013 and with the help of friends and neighbors I have raised more that $20,000 for this cause.
Making this effort extremely special is that I am dedicating my fundraising for the construction of a house near my hometown of Franklin, Wisconsin. Marine Lance Corporal (ret.) Bobby McCardle, was severely wounded in 2007 in Iraq at age 20. His wife Stephanie was at his side as he endured more than 40 surgeries. Today, along with their children Taylor and Chase, they eagerly await the construction of their specially adapted home. In Bobby's words, "it will grant us the ability to dream again."
Together we can make a every mile count!
Thank you for your support!
