I know, I know, you hear this all the time. Give this charity money, give that charity money. Political leanings, leadership, and personal beliefs all take a backseat in my mind when it comes to the men and women of the Armed Forces. They do good, and now we will too. One of my good friends Roan is helping his friends 2009 Marine Corps Marathon team help raise money. The race is the 2009 Team Hope for the Warriors Marine Corps Marathon.
From the site: Approximately 30,000 people are expected to take to the streets of Washington, DC on Oct 25, 2009 for the 34th running of this marathon, but only the special few will be running for a cause greater than themselves. Members of Team Hope for the Warriors™ unite in the Hope For The Warriors™ mission to ensure that the sacrifices of wounded and fallen warriors and their families are never forgotten nor their needs unmet, particularly with regard to the short and long-term care of the severely injured.
