Run To Support Our Veterans

Run to Support our Veterans

If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s to be deeply grateful and appreciative of the sacrifices of our military veterans. All of us know or have relatives who have served in our armed service, and these brave people have had no reservations about putting their lives on the line for their country. And to these people, I owe a debt of gratitude.

On Sunday, December 4th, I will be running in my fifth California International Marathon (CIM). The CIM is a 26.2 mile course that starts from Folsom, CA and ends in Downtown Sacramento. For this year’s race, I am running it to raise funds for an organization called Home For our Troops.

Homes for Our Troops (HFOT) is a privately funded nonprofit organization whose mission is to build specially adapted, mortgage-free homes nationwide for the most severely injured Veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan. Most of these Veterans have sustained injuries including multiple limb amputations, partial or full paralysis, and/or severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). These homes restore some of the freedom and independence our Veterans sacrificed while defending our country, and enable them to focus on their family, recovery, and rebuilding their lives. You can visit their website at www.hfotusa.org. In California alone, they have built or almost completed 40 homes for disabled veterans.

My goal is to raise $600, but going above that would be awesome.

Any support you can provide, whether financial or words of encouragement is greatly appreciated. You can visit the CIM website at www.runcim.org to take a look at the course route I’ll be running. You are very much welcome to stand along the sidelines and cheer myself and the other runners along; and to pass me snacks (i.e. Bacon) as I run by.

Please visit my Home For our Troops donation page for more information about what I’m doing and who it benefits:

Hope to see you on the course.

Thank you.
Jerome
