|Do something Amazing! Support the Marines of ALWAYS BROTHERS, honor the fallen U.S. Service men and women from Washington State and raise money for research on traumatic brain injury and post traumatic stress, the “invisible wounds” of war that afflict hundreds of thousands of soldiers and veterans and millions of Americans every year.|
Every year, the Marines of ALWAYS BROTHERS run 100 Miles to support their fellow Marines and their families. This year they are taking it to the limit for ONE MIND for Research, a nonprofit that is working on major new research for TBI and PTS.
ALWAYS BROTHERS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was formed by a group of Marines that served at the Marine Barracks 8th & I Streets in Washington, DC and served on the Marine Security Forces at the Presidential Retreat Camp David and at the White House Communications Agency in the mid-1990s. The organization was initially formed to honor Capt. Swisher, a fellow Camp David Marine who lost his life in Iraq.
In 2011, ALWAYS BROTHERS ran 100 Miles in 27 hours from Thurmont, MD to the final resting place of Capt. Tyler B. Swisher, USMC who lost his life serving in Iraq in 2005. Always Brothers raised $20,000 for the education funds of his children and for Operation Gift Card.
In 2012, ALWAYS BROTHERS ran from Mariemont, OH (Tyler's Hometown) 100 Miles to Columbus, OH to honor the 23 Marines and Navy Corpsman from LIMA COMPANY, 3rd Bn, 25th Marines from Columbus, Ohio who lost their lives in Iraq in 2005. Always Brothers raised over $85,000 for the education funds of the 15 children whose fathers died from Lima Co.
On August 10-11, 2013, Always Brothers will run a 100 Mile loop from Seattle Washington through South King County and finish at CenturyLink Field, home of the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks and MLS’s Sounders FC, to honor the U.S. Service men and women who served in the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan by raising funds for ONE MIND.
Teams are encouraged to raise a minimum of $5000 each to donate to One Mind for Research. The 100 Mile run is not a race and all runners will run at the pace of the Always Brothers running team. Pace will be approximately 11 to 14 minute miles with short water and food stops every 4-7 miles.
You can obtain a race map and get more information at www.alwaysbrothers.org.
But while you’re here, please consider making a GENEROUS CONTRIBUTION to support the Marines of ALWAYS BROTHERS and ONE MIND for Research.
