2013 Marine Corps Marathon

Thomas K. Simpers, LtCol. USMC - Archmere Academy, Class of 1983, and Villanova University, Class of 1987, - left us too soon on September 6, 2011.

To honor the memory of our friend and classmate, the Penna-Lutz team will be running in the 2013 Marine Corps Marathon October 27, 2013 in Arlington, Virginia.  Robert Penna, Archmere, Class of 1985 and Steph Penna Lutz, Archmere, Class of 1983, will be running with Tom's name and rank on our race day shirts.
Rob's wife, Melanie Penna, will be running in honor of her father, Robert Abke, former Marine.  In military terms, "in memory of" is designated for the deceased and "in honor of" is designated for living members of the military.

In support of our run, I would ask you to make a donation to Tom's charity, 
Wounded Warrior Project
Our goal is to raise $5,000 for WWP.  Steph will be running on the 2013 WWP Marine Corps Marathon Race Team in support of this goal.  Wounded Warrior Project's Mission is "To honor and empower wounded warriors".  The WWP takes "a holistic approach when serving warriors and their families to nurture the mind and body, and encourage economic empowerment and engagement."  Please see the link below to learn more about Wounded Warrior Project and their efforts to support our military personnel.

Thank you for supporting Wounded Warrior Project and our Marine Corps Marathon run in memory of our friend!

Stephanie Penna Lutz, Dr. Robert Penna, and Melanie Abke Penna
