Lisa M's Marine Corps Marathon for TAPS
On October 22, 2017, I will be participating my very first marathon, the 42nd Annual Marine Corps Marathon. I'm running the marathon to support the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS). TAPS provides direct support to families who have been impacted by a death in the military.
The funds I raise will flow directly into TAPS programming which supports these families through an amazing network of resources, seminars and publications. TAPS provides these services at no charge to survivors from all branches of the service, including Reserves and National Guard. Please help me honor our fallen heroes by supporting me in this effort. If you are unable to contribute financially, consider sharing my page (http://team.taps.org/goto/LisaMcCurdy2017) with friends and family to spread the word about the work TAPS does every day.

Raising the bar
I am so thrilled to have met my fundraising goal in such a short period of time. I'm so touched by the support that so many family and friends have given to TAPS! It really is a great organization -- I had the opportunity to meet some folks fundraising for Team TAPS at the Cape Cod Ragnar Relay this past weekend. It was so fun!
Since we've knocked this fundraiser out of the park so far, I've decided to increase my goal to see just how much good we can all do together. Thank you, again, to everyone who has shared or donated so far!

Wow, I'm blown away! In less than a week, I've been able to reach more than 75% of my fundraising goal thanks to the support and generosity of many friends and family. Thank you so much for your contributions to TAPS!
This weekend, I'll be running as a part of a 12-member team, running the length of Cape Cod in a relay-style event. I'll be running 13 miles over 36 hours in 3 legs, and I'm looking forward to the challenge!
Have a great rest of the week and weekend!

Thank you so much to those of you who are interested in following my road to the Marine Corps Marathon in support of TAPS!
My training kicked off a few weeks ago, but my mileage is now starting to creep upwards. This past weekend, I completed an 8-mile training run in Newport, and also got this page launched. I'm excited to start on the fundraising side of things!
I'll be posting updates on both my fundraising and training in this space. Feel free to share the link with anyone who you think might be interested in the mission that TAPS serves.
Have a great week!
