This is a message for our awesome Cape Ann running community.
There is a new race this Memorial Day called the Freedom Run. http://cambridge5k.com/freedom/ This run is a hyper-patriotic celebration in honor of our service men and women.
A portion of the proceeds is going towards The Glen Doherty Memorial Foundation – which is an organization created in honor of Glen Doherty that is committed to helping former special operations professionals transition and succeed into civilian life. http://www.glendohertyfoundation.org
Glen was one of the 2 former Navy SEALs who died defending the American Embassy in the Benghazi attack on September 11th, 2012. He was an amazing man and a member of our family. We are honored to have this race as a way to show our pride and love for him. My son Callahan (age 7) will be running this race (his first 5K) for his Uncle Glen. He is being joined by his best buddy Luke and an amazing group of Cape Ann runners. I want to give a special shout out to Ann Sanfilippo (she is Cal’s first grade teacher at EGS)who is among that group. What an amazing feeling to be running a race with YOUR own teacher! We would love to have more people from our community join us. Everyone who runs with Team GDMF gets an awesome team t-shirt in addition to the Freedom Run t-shirt — there is a great post race party sponsored by three breweries so after you run for Glen, you can have a few drinks for him too! He would run and drink for you, that’s a guarantee.
Please contact me with any questions firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please register by Sunday May 12th in order get your Team GDMF t-shirt.
