RI National Guard Vets to walk Boston Marathon,
raising funds for the Wounded Warrior Project
When most people join the Boston Marathon, it’s in running shoes and running clothes, with a goal of finishing as quickly as they can. But for these Rhode Island National Guard Veterans – the goal, and attire, is much different. They will walk the 26.2 miles in full gear, raising money for the Wounded Warrior Project in honor of Sgt. James C. Dube, a Rhode Island National Guardsman who served in Iraq and died in 2007.
In anticipation of their “march,” the Guardsmen have been accepting donations, hopeful of raising significant money for the Wounded Warrior Project. They are asking people to sponsor them with donations that go directly to the Wounded Warrior Project on the Web at http://goo.gl/XBJkt.
The Wounded Warrior Project, a nonprofit, was founded a decade ago to raise awareness and enlist the public's aid for the needs of injured service members; to help injured service members aid and assist each other; and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members.
