We’re looking for volunteers to staff our extra water stations along the Marine Corps Marathon route on October 22. We’re also looking for donations of bottled water and oranges or other supplies to help fuel the AFF Team SideXSide runners. It’s a great day out and whilst doing your bit.

AFF supporter Daniel Rogers intends to run through the “Valley of No Wires” in the Bird-In-Hand Half Marathon! Hot air balloons, amazing course through Amish farmlands, rest stops at one-room schoolhouses, water stations staffed with Amish children, fantastic finisher’s medal for all who complete the half marathon, guest speaker, bon fire and s’mores, plus all the usual stuff – tech shirt, chip timing, expo (with items for purchase), pasta dinner, food, age group awards, and so much more!
In Daniel’s words:
“Back in 2015, I was involved in a bad skiing accident that essentially ended my military career. I had 6 broken vertebrae, cracked a 7th, broke 4 ribs, punctured my right lung, broke my collarbone and now have a brachial plexus injury in my right arm. At the time, I could only move my pinky and ring fingers. Through electro therapy and strengthening, my arm is coming back and I do have full range of motion. I am still working on the strengthening of it. I also had to learn how to walk again and was put in a turtle shell for 4 months as my back healed. Praise God that it did heal up and I am once again able to run and walk with no problem.
I first heard of your organization by way of the Care Coalition and was invited to do the Yomp in 2015. It gave me something to strive for and after only 6 months of healing I completed the bronze section of the course.”
Good luck, Daniel, and thanks again! Sponsor Dan here:
