Semper Fi Fund at Boston Marathon 2019
The Semper Fi Fund is selected, once again, as a charity partner for the world's oldest annual marathon.
The Boston Marathon isn’t only the world’s oldest, but is regarded as one of the world’s most challenging races. Despite the oftentimes formidable weather conditions for the April 2018 race, Semper Fi Fund's Community Athletes and veterans of Team Semper Fi faced the challenge with determination and inspired us all! We look forward to bringing an even larger presence to Boston Marathon 2019, one of the world's most prestigious road racing events.
Take compassion to the next level—take the initiative to fundraise and compete in athletic events in support of Semper Fi Fund.
Michelle Kinsella: "There are 3 things that make my life meaningful: My children, being an elementary health teacher and running to raise awareness and funds for the Semper Fi Fund!"
"Being a Semper Fi Fund Community Athlete gives me a sense of purpose when I think about the magnitude of the challenges wounded veterans and their families face on a daily basis."
