Camp Lejeune, NC to Camp Pendleton, CA - Matt Littrell a former Marine Infantryman, has created an incredible fundraiser to benefit the Semper Fi Fund that will take him from Camp Lejeune, NC to Camp Pendleton, CA on horseback.

His goal is to raise awareness about our mission while raising funds to assist our wounded and ill service members and their families. To learn more about Matt and his 2 mustangs, please visit his Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Thelongtrailhome and to donate, please visit his fundraising page http://fundraising.semperfifund.org/fundraise?fcid=249300

Update: A note from Matt about an October 4th ride in Socorro, NM:

"I had a meeting with the Chamber of Commerce in Socorro regarding the ride on Oct 4th and here's some details for you guys. We will start at 9:00 am MST from Escondida lake just north of Socorro. We will then ride through town and will end up at the rodeo grounds and we are piecing together shuttles for people to get back to their vehicles at the lake and a dinner at the rodeo grounds. Rumor has it that cowboy singer and Marine dad R.W. Hampton may be singing a song or two around a campfire the night of the 4th as well. As more details come through I will pass them along. If you're planning on riding with us please let me know so I can get a head count for food that night and so we know how many people we can expect to send a message to our veterans loud an clear that we will show up for them!

Update: The Long Trail Home surpasses $50,000.00 raised!! Way to go Matt!!
