Peachy's 2018 Marine Corps Marathon Fundraising Page
It is a huge honor to run for Team Fisher House for the 2nd year under The Reynolds Team. In 2017 I ran the Army Ten Miler with my team and this year I took a leap of faith to challenge myself to run my 1st Marathon, the 43rd Marine Corps Marathon on October 28th, 2018!!!
I felt that if I ever decided to run a marathon that it would only be for a great and meaningful cause. Please help me in my marathon journey and help me raise funds for The Fisher House Foundation. They do great work in creating a Home Away from Home for our heroes and their families while they seek medical treatments. They have helped more than 30,000 in 2017 and Fisher House depends on donations to help in their work to help our Military and Veterans. When you place a donation, Sarah and Debbie of The Reynolds Team will match your donations!!!
Read this moving story below of Senior Airman Heather Carter who was looking forward to a long military career when disaster struck. Injured in a freak accident, Heather’s left leg was badly shattered, and her life was changed forever.
In her words: “I had been such an extrovert; I loved sports and loved life. Then the accident, and my life changed overnight, and so did I. The chronic pain forced me to isolate. I became a hermit. I was hooked on meds. Depression became rampant. And yes, I thought heavily about suicide.” After 14 grueling surgeries over four years, Heather and her doctors made the tough decision to amputate her leg. Her mom, Vicky Carter, quit her job to be at her daughter’s side, and took on the role of caretaker and advocate during Heather’s rehabilitation process. They stayed at Fisher House for more than a year.
Describing her time at Fisher House, Vicky said “In your darkest hours, when you think you have nowhere to turn, Fisher House offers a glimmer of hope. It was like a hand reaching down and pulling you up. You knew it was going to be okay.”
You can help military and veterans families feel that glimmer of hope when they need it most, at a time of a medical crisis.
