It would be really cool if we could help Drew meet his goal before the gun goes off on Monday…
“Thus far I have raised almost $30,000 in support of the Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF). My donations page is right here, I am literally about a 1,000 short of my goal www.firstgiving.com/rangerdew . More specifically, the funds are being raised in memory of my friend, SFC Lance H. Vogeler who was KIA in support of combat operations this past OCT in Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF). He had 3 children, one of which he did not get to meet as he was born 4 months ago. The SOWF provides college tuitions for the children of deceased Special Operation Forces (Rangers, Seals, etc).
I will be doing this marathon completely barefoot. I have been a barefoot coach and practitioner for years, and ran many marathons before but never barefoot. By no means do I advocate to run ‘completely’ barefoot on pavement, but simply to run with those bio-mechanics. Lastly, most people tell me I’m crazy. There will be some suffering on monday, but they say ‘suffering provides the opportunity to exercise will and develop grit,’ and I think that attitude would be a fitting tribute to my friend Lance, and other Special Operators killed in the line of duty.”
