Welcome to my fundraising page and thanks for visiting!

So this is my first actual fundraising gig. I've reached out before for USAT Collegiate Triathlon Nationals in 2016, thank you again to those 5 donors for helping me make it there. I am giving this thing a shot-- fundraising for a cause not focused on myself, Hire a Hero. I've always ran for myself while attempting to inspire my friends and family, bringing about the camaraderie I love in sport. It's time to run for a team and I chose Hire a Hero, who helps veterans of the US Military transition to the civilian world after service. I am dedicating this marathon to those who have served and are currently serving. Recently I have befriended veterans on campus, my last internship, and in passing, and they have inspired me in many ways including the reason you are reading this right now.

As some of you may know, I switched majors at the beginning of the year, thus I will spend one more semester at the 40 acres. In order to finish this semester with a bang, what could be a more better way than to run my 5th marathon. I have not run one since Austin in 2015. I have not told many people this, but I have also been undergoing recruitment for United States Marine Corps Officer Candidate school to attend upon completion of my degree. That being said, of course I had to do this marathon while I am still a young civilian. Why not? Y'all know I've always been obsessed with running anyway. I will also attempt to Boston Qualify with this race by setting a goal of running in less than 3 hours and 35 minutes.

Please help me support Hire Heroes USA by making a donation. The process is fast, easy, and secure. I truly appreciate any support you can provide. It will benefit a great cause!

If you can't make a donation at this point, help me reach my goal by sharing this page on Facebook/elsewhere with your family and friends!

Thanks so much for your generosity, time, and consideration. Hook 'em horns and Semper Fi.
