In his memory, a fine young American will be running the Marine Corps Marathon raising funds for the International Association of Fire Fighters. In her words: “Joe lived for only 23 years, but gave so much back to our nation. He was one of many heroes that willingly sacrifice themselves for the safety of others. Sadly we don’t hear about each and every one of them, or get to know them unless if there is a 5-minute media coverage. I told Joe’s story to my family and friends; they were touched just as much as I was. So we came up with the idea to run a fund raising campaign for this race and dedicating it to Joe’s loving memory.”
Nila contacted me asking if she could use a photo from the blog on her fundraising site and I said I’d do her one better. Fire fighters and paramedics being my kind of ninjas, I said I’d post the link to her fundraiser here. So without further ado:
|Clark Kent has nothing on this guy.|
It is my understanding Nila has been training her tail feathers off and intends to win the entire event. At least that is what I told her was the price of my posting a link. So if you like betting on a sure thing and giving to a worthy charity in the name of a worthy Marine, go check out Nila’s fundraising site and throw some money her way.
