|Robin at Run For The Warrior® Races over the past 10 years|
Below is a letter from Hope For The Warriors® President, Robin Kelleher:
In 2006, the first Run For The Warriors® was held aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. The run was created as a Homecoming for those service members who returned to the country through a hospital and never received the proper celebration for their return. The Run For The Warriors® invited the community to come together—military units, families, community leaders, and local businesses—in support of a group of service members wounded in Iraq. It was a beautiful event and nothing, including the pouring rain, could dampen our spirits.
I am excited to celebrate 10 years of Run For The Warriors® with you and the Jacksonville community. To celebrate 10 years, I am making a personal commitment to support our nation’s heroes and military families. I want to donate $10 in support of your run!
Once you register for the 10th Annual Run For The Warriors®, we encourage each of you to also raise funds to help military families in your community. I want to be the first one to donate towards your fundraising and help you get started. I will donate $10 to the first 50 individuals that send me a link to your 10th Annual Run For The Warriors® donation page.
I look forward to supporting your fundraising efforts and I am excited to see you at this year’s race.
Robin Kelleher, President of Hope For The Warriors®
