My good friend from high school, Dave Folwell, is running in the Marine Corps Marathon out in Washington DC. Deciding to race for a good cause, he chose to try and raise money for the Wounded Warriors Charity. It's an amazing cause and is obviously near and dear to my heart. Please visit his page and help him in his attempt to reach his target goal of $1,500. Thank you all.

|Running to improve lives|
|Very recently I decided to run the Marine Corps Marathon on October 28,2007. I thought, “…if I am going to run 26.2 miles, I should do it for a good cause ?…. What better reason to run then to support the men and woman who serve this country?” |
I chose to run for Hope For the Warriors, a fundraising organization for injured soldiers, because one of my best friends, Jake Wood, is in the Marines. In addition, one of his best friends, Clay Hunt, a person who I had the pleasure to enjoy some beers with in San Diego last December, was recently injured. Clay was shot in the hand. The bullet went in just above the wrist and blew out the palm of his hand.
‘Hope For the Warriors’ helps support soldiers who are adversely affected by injury or death in the line of duty. As a member of team Wounded Warrior, the donations that I collect are used to enhance the quality of life of affected US Service Members and their families.
Regardless of whether you support the war or not it is important that we support the people that are serving this country.
So what I am asking is that you donate a small amount to support US Service Members who have been affected by injury or death. Donations as small as $5, $10, or whatever amount you can give are all helpful. My goal is to reach $1,500 by October 20th.
