Back when I was in college, I saw an ad on the DC metro for running a marathon for charity. I remember thinking that would be a really cool thing to do one day. Recently, I became more serious about this idea, & decided to make it a goal to accomplish before I turn 30. I began researching best marathons for first timers; among the lists was the Marine Corps Marathon. I soon found that Team Chris, a team that fundraises for a charity that is close to my heart, will be participating in this marathon. The running team is named after Christopher Scherer, my friend's younger brother & a family friend whom I have known since elementary school. Chris was a Marine, & gave his life in Iraq in 2007. His family has since started a charity in his memory, a charity that has helped many of our troops, including a member of my own family. Soon after Chris' sacrifice, my stepbrother Nick enlisted in the Marine Corps. While he was serving in Afghanistan, the Corporal Christopher G . Scherer Fund sent supplies such as t-shirts and socks to Nick and his fellow marines. I am honored to now be a member of Team Chris, both to honor a friend and to give back to such a meaningful charity. This will be my first marathon, and I will be running it back in DC, the place where I first began to think of running one. Specifically, the money I will raise will go towards sponsoring one or more service dogs for Wounded Warriors. Please consider donating to this charity & helping me to accomplish my goal!
