From a friend that has a son deployed:
10 Mile Rock Website
Friends & Family,
I had an idea while walking the lake trail one day this week related to the “10 Mile Rock – In Memoriam” post from January 4, 2011. What if I found sponsors to donate $.50 – $1.00 for each mile that I walk between January 1-March 31, 2001, to the Wounded Warrior Project in memory of the fallen Marines of the 2nd Battalion, 9th Marines? How many wounded warriors could be helped? Or, if someone wants to donate a specific amount, make them aware of that option.
This idea is one of the primary reasons for creating my blog (marinedadx2.blogspot.com). Sponsors can track the number of miles I walk over the first 3 months of the year and give a tax deductible donation to the Wounded Warrior Project. If others want to participate as a walker with sponsors, it would be great.
The capstone event, a 5 mile walk/run, will be held for walkers and sponsors on Saturday, March 26, 2011, at the small lake in the Carrington Lakes subdivision, Trussville, Alabama. We’ll meet at the clubhouse, and begin the walk at 10:00 a.m.
I’m looking for sponsors and other walkers. If you want to participate and donate to a very worthy organization, please send me an e-mail or call me.
