On October 22, 2017, our team, TEAM NICK will be running the 42nd Annual Marine Corps Marathon in Washington DC in honor of my son, Lance Corporal Nicholas Hale Anderson, who was killed in action on November 12, 2004 in Iraq, in support of the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS). TAPS provides direct support to families, like mine, who have been impacted by a death in the military regardless of geography or circumstance. This will be my 11th year running Marine Corps Marathon, and my 42nd marathon overall.
The funds TEAM NICK raises, will flow directly into TAPS programming which supports families, like mine 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. TAPS’ programs and services are available not only for immediate family, but also for extended family and friends.
Please help us honor Nick and other fallen heroes by supporting me in this effort.
No donation is too big or too small.
