A Message From Kathy Wise

Dear Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) or 10K Runner-

Welcome to the Community Semper Fi Team for the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund (IMSFF)!

On behalf of everyone at IMSFF, we want to thank you for choosing to “Run for the Fund” and raise support for our injured and critically ill service members and their families.

My name is Kathy Wise and I am the 2010 Marine Corps Marathon Race Coordinator for IMSFF. I am so excited about this opportunity and look forward to joining you on this amazing journey!

Working with the Semper Fi Fund is so rewarding because not only do I get to work with individuals like you but I also have the opportunity to meet the heroic service members that are receiving assistance from the IMSFF. IMSFF is so thankful to have people like you on our team, people who understand the IMSFF mission and deeply care about our nation’s injured and critically ill service members and their families.

One of my jobs is to assist you with running a successful marathon. So whether you are new to running a marathon or have run many marathons, you should be selecting a running program that meets your needs. Below are a few links that may be helpful to you in selecting a program:

Runner’s World Training Program

Jeff Galloway Training

Active.com Training

(These are just suggestions…if you “Google” marathon training programs you will find many options!)

Also, I can assist you with your fundraising.  As you may know, the IMSFF asks that you raise a minimum of $300 for our mission.  (The deadline to reach this goal is September 30.) Attached is a  Check Donation Form that will help you with your efforts.

I will be sending you notices and updates by email over the next few months.  Please add my email address to your contact list so that information reaches you and not your spam box!

Ok, now we are off and running!   Please let me know if you have any questions.  I look forward to working with all of you and having a very successful and fun Marine Corps Marathon!

Warmest Regards,
Kathy Wise
