Family & Friends,
Welcome to my fundraising page!
I have chosen to participate in the 2020 Travis Manion Foundation 9/11 Heroes Run. Please support me in my endeavor by making a donation! Your donation will help Travis Manion Foundation (TMF) - a military support organization that empowers our nation's veterans and families of fallen heroes to develop character in future generations. Named after 1stLt. Travis Manion, USMC, who made the ultimate sacrifice in the Al Anbar province of Iraq on April 29th, 2007, the Foundation is committed to honoring our nation's fallen heroes and strengthening the character of our nation's youth.
Please help me towards my goal by giving back to those in need! We need to help those who have paved the way for us and we need to help those who have built the foundation of our great military.
My first time participating in the run was in 2016 during my Junior year at the Naval Academy. It was such a great experience because of the family atmosphere and the experience gave me a better appreciation for those who have served, are serving, and will serve. Everyone was there for one goal and that was to give back and to support the heroes of our military and to their families.
As a junior officer in the Navy, I firmly believe in 1stLt. Manion's saying, "If not me then who..." To me it means to take complete ownership of what I do and how I lead Sailors on an everyday basis.
During my commissioning ceremony at the Naval Academy, Vice Admiral Carter, the superintendent said, "Sign on, come sail with me...Lead, Fight, Win." So I ask you, come sail with me and let's lead, fight, and win together by supporting the fallen.
