Few people come around in life who have the ability to impact so many people's lives the way Dave did. Whether you knew him 27 minutes or 27 years, Dave was one of those rare individuals who you instinctively knew you would treasure forever. Everything Dave did, he did passionately and to the fullest. We were fortunate enough to call him our cousin, but the bond of friendship we had went far beyond the last name we shared. Though picturing a future without Dave is incomprehensible, we are so grateful for the precious time we had with him in our lives and we'll cherish those memories always. We are better people for having known Dave. Not a day will go by that he won't be loved and missed by so, so many. As a small way to express our gratitude for Dave, his life and his heroic service, on Sunday, October 7th, we will run the Chicago Marathon in his honor. While training to run 26 miles comes with it's sacrifices, they are nothing compared to the sacrifice that Dave and other service members like him make every day to protect our freedom. Please consider supporting us in this amazing cause by donating to the David Warsen Memorial Fund. It is as easy as clicking the 'Give' button below. All contributions are made securely through the protected PayPal site and any donation, no matter how big or small, will help the memory of Dave live on through scholarships in his name and a contribution made in his honor to support other families of Navy SEALs.  Proceeds from The David Warsen Memorial Fund will be split between annual soccer scholarships in Dave's name and the Navy SEAL Foundation. The scholarships will be awarded to Kentwood Community soccer players who cannot afford to play soccer. This will range from kids playing recreational soccer all the way up to high school. The Navy SEAL Foundation provides support and assistance to the Naval Special Warfare community and has served as an invaluable support system to the Warsen family during this difficult time.   Fundrazr is a Facebook application of PayPal. PayPal accepts all major credit cards. Checks made payable to the David Warsen Memorial Fund can be accepted at any Huntington Bank branch, please note 'Marathon' in the memo line.
