Hello friends. A bit of a shameless plug here:
Later this month I will be participating in the Viking Challenge on base. The Viking Challenge is a 24 hour team walk which raises funds for the Fisher House. For those of you who don't know what the Fisher House is, it is similar to the Ronald McDonald house for wounded servicemembers. Their families can stay in their houses free of charge while the troops are receiving care at a military treatment facility, sometimes for extended periods of time. A friend of mine stayed in one for about a month after her husband stepped on an IED in Afghanistan, and she was so thankful for the support system and to not have to worry about paying a hotel bill or anything of that sort.
Since this is such an important cause, we are trying to raise as much money as we possibly can for it. If you can afford to donate anything, even just a dollar, please do so here. If you can't, then just please think good thoughts for us as we walk on July 26th. :)
