Alyssa Boule Shaw is running the NYC Marathon with Team TAPS!
Hi Friends & Family -
Having been inspired by many runners before me for their commitment to raising money for a cause they believe in, to the training it takes to cross the finish line, on November 6, I’m running the NYC Marathon for the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS). TAPS provides direct support to families who have been impacted by death in the military regardless of geography or circumstance.
My husband Kevin ran for TAPS when he completed the Marine Corps Marathon in 2017. I was so moved by the experience he had with TAPS that I also want to run in honor of an impacted military family.
Supporting veterans and military families is important to me. At work, I am a senior sponsor for Forward at Edelman DC which serves to support reservists, ex-military members and their families employed at the agency. Last year I completed the GoRuck Chad 1000x in support of veteran suicide prevention.
I know people who have benefited from TAPS, and 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. TAPS’ programs and services are available not only for immediate family, but also for extended family and friends.
Please help me honor our fallen heroes by supporting me in this effort. No donation is too big or too small.
