Sheridan's Marathon for The Children of Fallen Patriots
After almost a year and a half, I was finally convinced to run another marathon. I'll be running in the Yuengling Marathon on March 18, 2018. This race is important to me because it runs through Camp Pendleton where the Red Horse Memorial is for my father and many other men that died on March 3rd, 2001. The last marathon I ran, I raised money to support the American Cancer Society. This time I have chosen to raise money for The Children of Fallen Patriots. The COFP provides scholarships and financial assistance during college to children who have lost a parent or guardian in the line of duty. The COFP has done so much for me these last 3 years and to my brother before me. They have even given me a grant to study abroad for 2 weeks during Jterm. If it weren't for the help of the COFP my college years would have been more stressful than they already are. I could never thank them enough for their support and assistance. I have a goal of $3,500 which is the amount a student can receive per semester if they meet the academic requirement. Please consider donating between now and race day to help another student who has lost someone they loved in the line of duty. You won't regret it. Please share with your friends and families as well!
