2015 Patriot Day Virtual 5k

September 10, 2015 ~ 9/11 was a day that we will never forget and I can't believe 14 years have passed since that tragic day. My heart goes out to the families that lost their loved ones who were taken far too soon. This would be a busy weekend but there are 3 virtual races that will be held on or around 9/11 that my mom, my sister and I signed up for so we recruited a few friends to help us knock this one out and show our support!

What I loved about this virtual race (besides what it stood for) is that Frogman Charities was created by a former Navy SEAL, has a great mission and awesome objective while supporting three great Navy SEAL Charities. 

Frogman Charities’ Mission is to provide support to military and veteran causes through the Frogman Charities Virtual Run/Walk Program.

 Frogman Charities’ Objective is to raise over one million dollars for select military and veteran charities per year.

Frogman Charities Supports The Following Organizations: 

After dedicating their lives to protecting the citizens of the United States and the World, Navy SEAL and Special Warfare Combatant-craft Crewmen (SWCC) are returning home only to find difficulty transitioning into civilian life.
The Foundation for Navy SEAL Veterans assists Navy SEAL & SWCC Force and Family, active and veteran, including disabled veterans, with transitioning back into civilian life and maintaining contacts with former Force colleagues thereafter. The organization mentors the expertise, contacts and personal and professional networks of Navy SEAL & SWCC Veterans and others in the community, forming a network to support Navy SEAL & SWCC Force and Family.
In addition to Force members, the Foundation provides transition and follow on assistance to family members, including the dependent spouse and/or children, whether the Force member is active, reserve, non-active (veteran), or deceased.

The UDT-SEAL Association is a non-profit Veterans Support Organization whose members are made up of U.S. Navy personnel who have served, or are presently serving in the Naval Special Warfare community.
Those personnel include those who have served in Amphibious Scouts and Raiders (S&R), Office of Strategic Services-Maritime Unit (OSS-MU), Naval Combat Demolition Units (NCDU), Underwater Demolition Teams (UDT), SEAL Teams, SEAL Delivery Vehicle Teams (SDV), Special Boat Teams (SBT), and Naval Special Warfare Combat Support/Combat Service Support Technicians.
Thank you Frogman Charities for a wonderful event.... We will never forget! 
Officially known as the National Navy UDT-SEAL Museum, the facility chronicles the warriors’ past. The Museum promotes family-friendly public education through interactive exhibits and artifacts, allowing patrons the opportunity to explore the history and heritage of the Navy SEALs, while honoring our fallen at the Navy SEAL Memorial.

 Thank you Don Mann and Frogman Charities for all you have done and continue to do....
You are certainly appreciated! (Love the medal, challenge coin and autographed book)
