I’m joining Team Homes For Our Troops at the Walt Disney World Inaugural 10K during the January 2014 WDW Marathon Weekend!
On January 10, 2014, my friend Jenn and I will run the inaugural WDW Marathon Weekend 10K. The course runs through Epcot, and I’m super excited to have my very first RunDisney experience. (I’m pretty sure it won’t be the last … )
We’re part of a charity team, each raising at least $500 for Homes For Our Troops (HFOT). HFOT is a charity committed to helping those who have selflessly given to our country and have returned home with serious disabilities and injuries since September 11, 2001. From their website:
We assist severely injured Veterans and their families by raising money, building materials and professional labor, and by coordinating the process of building a home that provides maximum freedom of movement and the ability to live more independently. The homes provided by Homes for Our Troops are given at NO COST to the Veterans we serve.
I want to blow that $500 goal out of the water! I have so many personal connections to the armed forces – father, grandfather, uncles, friends … Our Vets are treasures. A home is one of the most important assets anyone can have, and I’m excited about this opportunity.
Part of my promise to my donors was that I’d run this race in costume. I’ll run in a Princess Sofia the First-themed outfit … somewhat along these lines:
Help us reach the team goal of $35000! You can read more and donate at my fundraising page.
