It's That Time of the Year Again....

Fundraising season ha! This year Dan and I will be running for Team Fisher House at the Army Ten Miler on October 9th. As usual our reasons for selecting this years charity is due to a personal tie.
In May one of Dan's best friends was injured in an IED attack in Afghanistan that killed 6 members of his unit. Once he was stateside he was put in a hospital almost 500 miles from his family. Fisher House provided a free place to stay for his wife and parents and free child care for his children.
Please check out our website if you would like to donate or if you would like to read more about Fisher House or other causes we have raised money for.

  1. I am a HUGE fan of Fisher House! When one of my husband's staff members was critically injured in an IED attack during their deployment, his mom and dad traveled from their home in California and were hosted at a Fisher House near the hospital in Bethesda where he was treated. They were able to spend several weeks there while he was undergoing surgeries, free of charge. I will definitely be making a donation! Good luck!
