On October 30th, I will be running the Marine Corps Marathon in an effort to raise enough money to send at least 1 Iwo Jima veteran back to his battlefield before time runs out. There are many veterans who would like to make the trip back, but unfortunately are unable to because of the expense (about $6500).
100% of all proceeds I raise will be sent to the Iwo Jima Association of America (IJAA) and used in their scholarship program to send an Iwo Jima veteran back to his battlefield to honor and remember the comrades who never returned, and hopefully make peace with the nightmares they have been enduring for the last 71 years.
