Sara & Pavla Run for TAPS

On October 22, 2017, Sara and Pavla will be running in the 42nd Annual Marine Corps Marathon (MCM). This will be Sara's third marathon and third MCM and Pavla's second marathon and first MCM. This year, they will run 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 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.

Instead of just asking for donations, we plan to run for them. For every mile we run while training for the People's Marathon, we hope that you will contribute 10 cents to TAPS. Pledge for May 2017 and at the end of the month we will let you know how many miles we ran. If you would like to give even more, please consider sticking with us through the summer for June and July as well.

Thank you!
