Marine Corps Marathon

Many of you who followed this site last year remember my good friend Dave Folwell running in the Marine Corps Marathon and raising money for the Wounded Warriors Foundation. He ran in honor of some mutual friends that we had who were hurt last year, and your generous donations helped him blast past his modest goal of $1,000 all the way to over $5,000.

Well, he's at it again. I wish I could have had more time to stump for him this year, but I just got the email (been a little cut off lately...). If you could please help us out, it would be amazing. Unfortunately it's even more personal this year, as many, many more warriors of 2/7 have been wounded in the past 7 months of fighting against the Taliban.

Anything and everything makes a difference. Thank you sincerely.

  2. Jake, good luck to your friend Dave! Thanks for the link. The Wounded Warriors Foundation is certainly a worthy cause.
