Chris Tanner's Family Assistance

It is with enormous sadness that Preeti and I advise you of the sudden and unexpected passing of one of our own – Chris Tanner.  Chris, a valuable NRI family member and a contributor to our USMC MCEITS program team in Kansas City, MO., died unexpectedly on November 25, 2017.  Chris is survived by wife Joedelene herself very ill, and their two and a half year old daughter, Madeline.  Please join the Network Runners team in keeping Chris and his family in your thoughts and prayers as they suffer through this terrible tragedy.    

Finally, I want to mention that we are launching a Network Runners wide fundraising effort to assist Chris’s surviving family with the large expenses that will soon begin to mount higher and higher. In the spirit of unity and family, I ask that you all consider contributing whatever you can. 

All contributions will be deposited directly into Joedelene's account by GoFundMe. Thank you.
