***UPDATE*** 27 Sep Thanks to all who donated. With your help we reached the 8,000.00 goal. The race went pretty well for me. I finished 17th out of 46 that started. Only 24 finished. I am feeling it a bit today and will be taking it easy for the next several days. I will try to conduct the drawing and notify the winners this evening.
My name is John "Ranger" Dailey. I am a retired Marine and I will be competing in the Great Eastern Endurance Run 100 Kilometer (62 Mile) race through the mountains of Va. on the 25th of September. I will be competing in this race on behalf of Alone and Unafraid.com, a great American company which has been a big supporter of the Semper Fi Fund.
Our goal is to raise awareness about, and money for the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund. They are a four-star charity dedicated to providing financial aid and quality of life solutions to:
• Marines and Sailors as well as members of the Army, Air Force and Coast Guard who have
served in support of Marine forces, when they become injured in post 9-11 combat or training, and their families.
• Help defray the expenses incurred during hospitalization, rehabilitation and recovery.
• Assist with the expenses associated with the purchase of specialized equipment, adaptive vehicles and home modifications.
• Educate the public about the special needs of our wounded service members and their families.
