"What's your inspiration?"

Inspired to Run

“What’s your inspiration?” 

June 6 is Global Running Day – a worldwide celebration of running that encourages everyone to get moving. Anything from running a marathon to taking your dog for a long walk counts! We’re big fans of physical fitness here at the Semper Fi Fund, so we urge you to visit the Global Running Daywebsite and pledge to run on June 6. When pledging, you’ll be asked, “What’s your inspiration?”
 
Consider Rob Jones, a double amputee who ran 31 marathons in 31 days in 31 different cities last fall! Rob's website invites his supporters to join him on his journey to raise money and awareness for Semper Fi Fund and other veteran organizations. Rob says, “I do not expect everyone to run a full marathon, but I do expect everyone to run a distance that challenges them.” 
 
After you make your pledge, click on our Community Athletes page and sign up as a Semper Fi Fund Community Athlete. You’ll be helping raise funds and awareness for the work we do serving those who’ve served us all – just like Rob.
