"It has always been a dream of mine to run a marathon and the fact that I can help support children of fallen and injured First Responders while I do that makes it even more worthwhile and meaningful. Thank you for taking part in this effort with me to support the First Responders Children's Foundation!"
"Running a marathon is no joke! Raising money for the First Responder's Children's Foundation has motivated me to take on the tough challenge of running the Austin Marathon for such a great foundation!"
