Default No Greater Sacrifice Donation

For all of you who donated to my sisters' "No Greater Sacrifice" thanks again. I just received an email from her today (you may have also, i dont know) But i thought i would post it here. She is running that marathon THIS weekend!!

Thanks again everyone, you guys rock!

Following email...

Subject: Your Marine Corps Marathon Donation

Only a few days left until the marathon, but I thought that I would pass on to you all a brief e-mail that was sent to the NGS foundation by SSGT Jackson's widow.

As you can see below, your money is truly going to a support a worthy cause. Even though I don't even know some of you, I am grateful for your generosity and support- your donations have combined to raise over $1,000- and the NGS team overall has raised over $50,000 that will go towards the education of SSGT's children. That really is the coolest thing about this entire marathon experience.

Thanks again- I'll be thinking about you all as I drag my butt through mile 25!

On occasion something happens that makes you stop what you are doing, lean back, and smile. Today I had one of those moments.

I received the e-mail below from Katie Jackson (Staff Sergeant Jackson's widow) after we spoke about all you have (and are) doing for her family.

For your efforts, I thank you. For those running this weekend, I encourage you.

With gratitude,

Dear Adam,

It was a pleasure to talk with you this afternoon. There are a few words I hope you can pass along to the runners and the No Greater Sacrifice staff....

I would like to say thank you for all you have done. It means a lot to our family. We are truly grateful. I would also like to say "best wishes" to all the runners for the race this weekend.

Katie Jackson for Zach age 9, Levi age 7, Sam age 5, and Hannah age 3.

God bless!
