Many of you already know Nicola Bradshaw, our Director of Communications in Washington DC…
“In a moment of madness I agreed to run the Marine Corps Marathon. At the end of October I will be challenging myself more than ever before and running the MCM in order to support Allied Forces Foundation (AFF).
Many of you know how involved with AFF I am and I have seen first-hand the impact that these challenges have on the wounded, ill and injured (WII) veterans, service people and their families who engage with AFF. I’d really appreciate any support you can give so please have a look at the link and let me know if you would like any more info about AFF. Many thanks!
AFF enters teams of WII veterans and service people from the UK, US, Denmark, Georgia and Australia in in the MCM, provides support runners and hosts an enjoyable time in the U.S. capital. The event provides a focus for recovery and rehabilitation and participants gain renewed self-confidence and re-establish. The AFF will once again field around 100 runners in signature groupings of both wounded & fit veterans competing under the auspices of the AFF.
They have served in combat in the same conflicts, and now they run to raise awareness and funds for the common wounded. All funds raised for the AFF (a 100% volunteer-run organization) go towards supporting WII, family members and care givers in special activities, events and training that enable recovery and the ability to share with fellow warriors who have been through similar trials.
Many thanks for your support – and don’t forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!”
Let’s make Nicola proud, folks!
But wait! What’s this? Our CEO, a veteran already of past MCMs, doesn’t want to stand on the sidelines and is bringing the family! Stuart Taylor comments as follows:
“On the 30th October I will be running the Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) with my daughter Chloe running the 10km in order to support Allied Forces Foundation (AFF) and help wounded, ill and injured (WII) runners on our team achieve this amazing challenge.
Chloe will be suporting 10 WII on the 10km run and I will be supporting 30 WII on the MCM. This MCM will be a challenge for both Chloe and I as we know the importance of supporting WII during the race and ensuring they complete their personal goals.”
