Team Mitch Winey
One of Mitch's many plans was to participate in a Marathon, with talk of running in this year's MCM. We have decided to complete his plan and run for him. Mitch was a member of the West Point Class of 2018. He departed on 02 June 2016 during a training accident in Fort Hood, TX with nine other soldiers. Not only are we participating in this race for Mitch, we are participating to honor all the men, women, and families who sacrifice everything for our great nation.
On October 22, 2017 our team will be participating in the 42nd Annual Marine Corps Marathon Events in support of the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS). TAPS provides direct support to families who have been impacted by a death in the military regardless of geography or circumstance.
The funds we will 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. TAPS’ programs and services are available not only for immediate family, but also for extended family and friends. Please help us honor our fallen heroes by supporting me in this effort. No donation is too big or too small.
