As you push to complete the Marine Corps Marathon, know that your physical and fundraising efforts impact families who need help overcoming dire financial circumstances.

“Thank you for helping us. My son being in the ER and having to make trips to the hospital caused me to miss many days of work. As a working parent, this has been a struggle. Thank you for the assistance to help my family get by this month. I truly appreciate it.”

"The girls are so happy they will have their own home again and that we will be together again. Thank you so much! Without your help, we would be homeless. With my new job, it would have taken months to save because of trying to pay for food and shelter for all of us."

We cannot thank you enough for being a part of Team Resilience and for your support of the bleeding disorders community. We look forward to running with you on October 27th.

Go Team Resilience….OORAH!

Be defensive as you train!
Have you ever heard of defensive running? Here are some defensive running tips!
1. Run facing traffic.
2. If you are using headphones, be sure you can hear things around you.
3. Wear reflective clothing.
4. Let someone know your route and how long you are expected to be out. 

Fundraising Tip:  
Send a thank you!  It’s a simple thing to do, but also one of the most powerful.

Make sure to say thank you to everyone who has supported you. Send emails, write personal notes and thank people in person. Do it every opportunity you get.
